This was inevitable wasn't it really. I mean c'mon! Regardless of all the press that Arctic Monkeys have (deservedly) got over the years they've somehow managed to become one of the world's biggest bands whilst giving as many of their fans as possible the middle finger.
You don't need me to write about Arctic Monkeys. Enough people do that already, but they are track of the week so Suck It And See.
I was lucky enough to pick up this from Record Store Day (along with the British Sea Power double 7” and Broken Bells EP) despite living in Sheffield. I'm pretty sure that's because everyone expected that 'Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair' would sell out immediately no one asked for it (and this meant that despite me being mid-way down the queue I still manage to secure a copy). Maybe this means that they need writing about because nobody is, because eveyone expects that everyone else is. Who knows?
Either way, the latest single from the Sheffield lads is as superbt as anything else that they've ever done. Still top of their game! Smart, riffing and eloquent. Name another band who can fulfil all three and still sell our arenas.
As if there was any doubt.
Fucking brilliant end effortlessly cool.
Normal indiepop service will resume tomorrow.
