It was, pretty much, good marketing which made the Arctic Monkeys...

Here in Brazil the cd it's just avaiable for downloads, we don't have it in the stores yet. But I bet everyone who has the "piracy" version will buy the original version when avaiable. Hope u understand my point of view.

jesus. you bunch of bitches, let the man post his link, you dont have to click on it, someone who wants to will, let them hear it, in the good faith that they'll buy it cos they like it.
it was, file sharing, marketing, a little piracy and faith that made the boys, gotta remember that they were a band-before hand, none of that shit matters too much to them, all they want is a big crowd of smiling faces beaming back at them when they play.
so what a couple of them faces pinched the album.... does turner give a fuck... nah

Yes...just an old man. 45 years. I have seen some good bands in that time. Artic Monkeys remind me of The Jam, Dickies, Plimsoles. Good Music. Great energy. Wish I could bottle it and drink.
