they've topped the Killers / lizard story.
I wondered when he was gonna admit that!

ARCTICS TO COLLABORATE WITH GEORGE MICHAEL?
Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has admitted a passing fondness for George Michael.
'I was in me local top shop the other day when I heard this song.'
'I kept wondering what it was, nodding me head along, when someone pointed out that it was Faith by George Michael.'
'I like that one, yeah, it's proper good.'
So does this mean a collaboration between the Sheffield chart-toppers and the 'Faith' singer?
Time will tell.
whenever they transcribe Arctic Monkeys interviews online and in the mag, they do their best to keep in the regional dialect features.
If they were talking to Badly Drawn Boy or someone else Northern who isn't famed for being Northern, there's no way you'd see words like 'owt', or 'nowt' in an article.
"Oh, I love how they speak. They're so Northern."
and rightly so...
that's funny. I imagine there's a certain amount of tongue-in-cheekness going on there.
And also the strong possibility that they know that sticking on a few stories with prominent band names in them will do wonders for their Google search rankings...
Also, I can't help reading the phrase "a long journey to Glossop" as a euphemism meaning "an extended bout of diarrhoea". I have no idea why. Apologies to anyone who lives there.
Maybe it could become a regular feature.
Next week: the story behind Karen O's mild dislike of EMF's 'Unbelievable'.
you've also got to love is the serious photograph they've selected to accompany it.
that's the other one, the guitarist
which I only know because No Rock'n'Roll Fun covered it. So not only of tiny interest, but late too.
...that new news item on DiS about Jack White is bang on the money.
to get from Sheffield, one travels across the Snake Pass, which can be hairy.
