I said, I bet that you look good on the dancefloor. See the end of the work for more notes. The video is a live recording of the band playing the song in a studio with a small audience watching with both the video and audio taken live. I think this song presents perfectly a typical few minutes romance that can happen in a every day situation. Arctic Monkeys' debut single featured a young woman on its cover, and we tracked her down to share her epic story.
Alex Turner introduces the band and the song and asks viewers not to "believe the hype" of the song. This presented a problem, however. Having signed to Domino Records, the homegrown indie founded by Laurence Bell the band turned down bigger offers from major labels , there was a real urgency to get their music properly recorded and out into the world.
I thought it was a really interesting story These days people are used to going to gigs and knowing all the words because of social media. But in those days, no one went to a gig and knew the words to the songs unless the band were huge. So there was a massive story bubbling under about this band. They had a tour booked and a potential promo launch on Radio One and various things really building up for them.
Can we still make this record? As such, from the word go, the pressure was on. Then a day or two after that, we went to the studio and started recording. We had 15 days to make the record. Everything Arctic Monkeys had done up to this point had been at a hurtling pace.
Inspired by the Strokes and the Libertines, the quartet started playing together in the music room at Stocksbridge High School during their lunch hours. It was only six months since both Turner and Cook had first picked up their guitars. Secretly, the apparently bashful Turner began writing his own songs, featuring perceptive and withering lyrics that looked at everyday life in Sheffield, matched to angular guitar rhythms.
But at the same time as Arctic Monkeys were busy honing their sound, Turner met the older Jon McClure, later the singer in Reverend and the Makers, joining his band Judan Suki as guitarist. I never knew he could write like that. Every day he was just writing bangers back then. When Judan Suki entered a Sheffield Studio, 2fly, run by engineer Alan Smyth, to record demos in autumn , Turner pulled the owner aside to ask him if he would like to come to see his other band play a gig at local venue The Boardwalk.
There was no drop in quality. Alex kind of shambled around on stage, but there was something there. From here Arctic Monkeys went into 2fly to record in their own right and their sound began to quickly develop. Are you meaning to? Jim Abbiss in It just went daft. Alex knew he was onto something. It reaffirmed for him that writing songs about those things touched people. Playing keyboards and bass in local bands in the Peterborough area from the age of 14, he first became interested in recording when he started assisting a friend of his father who ran a mobile studio taping live shows.
I did a few recordings in a little tiny studio and I just fell in love with it. It was a really simple analogue setup with a track Tascam tape machine. That really sort of ignited my first interest. Then I found out about a college course that you could do which combined a bit of music and recording. I always felt way more comfortable doing the recording than I did being on stage. And the more I found out about the fact that you could just sort of work with musicians and make records, I just got more interested in that idea.
I was doing this college course where I was learning the supposed correct theory about how you do stuff, and then I went to work with him. I had I guess a formal way of learning about stuff and he had a completely informal way of doing it. And I just learned loads from him because he used equipment however he felt like using it. In , Abbiss left Spaceward and moved to London where he got a job engineering at The Power Plant in Willesden, just as dance music was beginning to explode.
I worked on various kinds of things in a couple of years there that were more dancefloor orientated and learnt a lot more about sequencing and the computer side of things. It was an intensive education, which then allowed Abbiss to step out as a producer in his own right, capable of working with both electronic outfits and live-band setups. People were just borrowing technology and ideas from everywhere. You could mix stuff up and mess around with sounds and whatever.
If you do it well and people like it, then they just like you for experimenting really. When it came to recording Arctic Monkeys, however, the plan was to nail the power and dynamics of their live sound. It seemed as though, for this first record, it wanted to be raw and as live as possible. It was meant to be as live-ish as possible and as near as we could get to a gig without being messy, really. They do anything to help you make your record.
And that place, they still kept the standards up.

Released on 14 October , it rode the wave of popularity behind the band after a series of sellout gigs across the country, culminating with a gig in front of 2, people at the London Astoria. This is the first of two references to Duran Duran in the band's lyrics, the second one appearing in the song "Teddy Picker" from their second album Favourite Worst Nightmare.

They do anything to help you make your record. And that place, they still kept the standards up. So the idea of a relatively local studio, which they could drive to in, like, an hour and a half, was really appealing to them. They had to go to a cutting room the day after that. They were still kind of their little closed gang One of the key features of the setup at Chapel that appealed to Abbiss was their Amek console.
It was designed to record stuff. So we used the desk for over half of the sounds. Everything sounded pretty good and pretty true and it was just a choice on certain things if you wanted to break out of the desk and throw something else in. And Urei mic pres that are quite good for kick and snare. But we used the desk loads. The ATCs in there are absolutely awesome. So at the end of the night, you put it on and turn it up and enjoy your music. They have a really good individual headphone mixer system at the Chapel, so everyone was happy using headphones.
They all stood around the drum kit with their own little mixer and the leads went off to a booth for the two guitar amps and the corridor for the bass amp, and that was it. On the ones where we felt like Alex would be better singing live, we just built a booth for him which he could step into. Matt never did his BVs as part of the live takes, he concentrated on his drumming.
The 87 was there for the BVs. Everybody you met in the industry was talking about that song and wondering if it was going to be the big first single. But all the performances were live on it, apart from his lead. He was really not into recording it. We chose the best bits of whatever else we had and did it in a day. With the deadline for the single looming, the album sessions broke, so that Abbiss and Barny could mix the track at Olympic Studios in London. I had the left-hand side of the desk and Barny had the right-hand side.
Given the channel limitations, in terms of effects, Abbiss and Barny were working with only an Echoplex tape delay and mono plate reverb. So that was it. And we were riding it live. It was really good fun. You basically just did a few performances and chose the one you thought was best.
Once the track was mixed, the band came down from Sheffield with their manager to hear the finished result. They were scared of it being too polished. So they relaxed then and from that moment on they really were a pleasure to work with. But there was never an issue about anything else. I think they stopped questioning whether their stuff was being ruined or not and just got on with it.
You help them in some small way, then they go off and have these amazing careers. All the best of luck to them. Thanks to Chapel Studios for their help with the photos in this article. And they slowed it down.

Love it. I listened to some Arctic Monkeys Songs and was very impressed. They have a Hot Hot Heat type melody but their sound is still all there own. Thier lyrics are also very cleverly written and it doesn't hurt that they have found thier own style and revel in it. I can't wait for the full album to come out. I just missed them when they played in L. Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweathearts is one of their all time best songs. It should have been on the album.
The other b-side is pretty good, the opening line of which is stuck in my head Saw them in Atlanta in 06 and they were great. I surely hope they stick around for awhile and don't lose the magic. I was first introduced to this record by a friend..
Then I download the full album, and I was really pleased.. Yes, it is in the mood of a lot of the recent bands eaning: bloc party, franz ferdinand, we are scientists, etc. However, it also has a special indie vibe, very english style of singing!. The first 4 songs really rocks! If u want to download a song to start hearing about the I recommend "The view from the afternoon" and the live performance they had on KCRW podcast itunes.
And yes be prepared to hear about them for the rest of the year, to appear of the NME,Spin, and rolling stone covers all around the world No doubt this band will be hyped in Filter and Spin over the next 12 months, but for once the hype will be justified. The best single of by miles and THE best new band in Britain.
From Sheffield so forget any prententious London aires and graces, better hooks than Franz Ferdinand, more focused than the Libertines and are set to give Oasis a run for their vast sums of money. Coldplay - forget it! The Arctic Monkeys are a cut and thrust rock outfit. This single rocks hard and fast. Singer sort of sounds like the New Order lead singer a bit, but this is not boring. Fast track. The b-side is crap in my opinion, but no worries, a lot of them are.
Bad price. These are three great tracks, but it is way too pricey for anyone but a collector. This is just a preview! Cannot annotate a non-flat selection.
