The Arctic Monkeys

Filed under: short reviews — @ 9:49 pm Comments (0)

Listening to Jonathan Ross on Saturday I heard a great track Fake Tales Of San Francisco by a new Sheffield band The Arctic Monkeys. Guitar-driven choppy rhythms, quirky musically and lyrically, and best of all with a singer who sings in a Sheffield accent. Like a Northern Jonathan Richman maybe. They release a debut single, Five Minutes With The Arctic Monkeys at the end of this month and are on tour now. Well worth a punt if you need some new excitement in your life. I shall go along to the Manchester date on June 9th.

For other tour dates and a a video of the Fake Tales song goto Arctic Monkeys website.
