CD - Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not

arctic monkeysHet is allemaal nogal snel gegaan voor de Arctic Monkeys. Vorig jaar nog onbekend, nu in de hitlijsten.  Voor ze het goed en wel beseften, stonden ze al te pronken op de podia van grote festivals. Een platencontract kregen ze zo in hun schoot geworpen en dus moest er maar gauw een debuutalbum komen. Heel wat nummers van "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not" lijken nog op demo's, maar om eerlijk te zijn: I don't care. Ik heb enorm genoten van dit plaatje enne... "When the sun goes down" is een parel van een hit, net als "Fake Tales of San Francisco" en "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor". Ik hou van hun britpop sound...  maar het is nu aan hen om zich te bewijzen. Op een volgend album bijvoorbeeld. Benieuwd of ze het eendagsvliegstadium kunnen ontgroeien, want de concurrentie is enorm.

Tracklist :
1.  The View from the Afternoon 3:40
2.  I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor 2:56
3.  Fake Tales of San Francisco 3:00

Pukkelpop - Arctic Monkeys

Moet ik de Arctic Monkeys nog voorstellen? Denk het niet he. In ieder geval blijf ik een grote fan van "When the sun goes down", een kei van een single. (Klik op de foto voor videos)

De lyrics
Who's that girl there?
I wonder what went wrong
So that she had to roam the streets
She dunt do major credit cards
I doubt she does receipts
It's all not quite legitimate

And what a scummy man
Just give him half a chance
I bet he'll rob you if he can
Can see it in his eyes,
That he's got a driving ban
Amongst some other offences

And I've seen him with girls of the night
And he told Roxanne to put on her red light
It’s all infected but he'll be alright
Cause he's a scumbag, don't you know
I said he's a scumbag, don't you know!

Although you're trying not to listen
Overt your eyes and staring at the ground
She makes a subtle proposition
“Sorry love I'll have to turn you down”

He must be up to something
What are the chances sure it’s more than likely
I've got a feeling in my stomach
I start to wonder what his story might be

They said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here

Look here comes a Ford Mondeo
Isn't he Mister Inconspicuous?
And he don't have to say 'owt
She’s in the stance ready to get picked up

Bet she's delighted when she sees him
Pulling in and giving her the eye
Because she must be fucking freezing
Scantily clad beneath the clear night sky
it doesn't stop in the winter, no
Around here

They said it changes when the sun goes down
Over the river going out of town

What a scummy man
Just give him half a chance
I bet he'll rob you if he can
Can see it in his eyes that he's got a nasty plan
I hope you're not involved at all
