"Arctic Monkeys Are The Greatest Band In The World" - Chris Martin
Coldplay front man Chris Martin has sensationally hailed Arctic Monkeys as the "Greatest band in the world".

While appearing on Chris Moyles' Radio 1 breakfast show, speaking about the Brit Awards and which bands he likes, Martin replied:
"Obviously the Arctic Monkeys are the greatest band in the world."

However, the singer's request to have some of the Arctic Monkeys' music played was rejected by Moyles - only because it was strictly a "Solo Artist" session.

Music Section Revamped
Just another site announcement. As most of you know, we were mentioned in Zoo Magazine, in which the article focused on our website's downloads.

We have also had several complaints in the past about our music section being hard to navigate and that it looks fairly cluttered, so we decided to try and neaten the place up.

As you can see, our Music Downloads page has been categorized into Demos, Live Audio and a new Interviews/Misc page.

Several additional downloads have been added to go along with the new revamp so we hope you all enjoy them and find it easier to navigate your way around the section.

Check out The Music Downloads Page

As always, feel free to leave comments and suggestions below.

Kasabian Huge Fans of Arctic Monkeys
Kasabian front man Tom Meighan has expressed how much he likes Arctic Monkeys, how they have changed the face of music and that they should win the Best British Breakthrough Act at the 2006 Brit Awards.

Meighan told The Daily Star:
“They’ve got to win British Breakthrough. I remember talking to my mates about them before they were signed and now look at them.”

“That guy [Alex Turner] is a poet, and I’m a proper fan of everything they’re about. It’s fucking amazing for British music what those lads have done and I’d love to meet them.”

Kasabian are also nominated for a Brit in the Best British Rock Act category, which led onto Meighan defending the Awards:

“Too many people talk shit about the Brits but it’s an awards show and it’s supposed to be fun and mean a lot at the same time.”
