Arctic Monkeys, currently on tour with Maximo Park et al on an NME-sponsored jaunt, have recorded an acceptance speech in advance of tonight's Brit Awards.
The Sheffield four-piece are nominated in the category of Best British Breakthrough Act, and it's believed that they're well ahead of their rivals (Editors, Magic Numbers) in terms of votes - it's a category that's voted for by the public, via Radio 1.
The band play Portsmouth Guildhall tonight. DiS editor Colin Roberts will be there. Don't get him too drunk, please.
