Hi fellow Merbites,
has anyone heard about this new rock phenom hailing out of Sheffield, England, called ''The Arctic Monkeys''? Judging by the huge success of their debut album, one might think they could be the 21st century's answer to the Beatles. Did you know that they're coming to the Montreal Spectrum later this month? Has anyone purchased any tickets yet? Would anyone have any opinion about their music? These guys apparently are all the rage in England at the moment, as their debut album has beaten all sales records for a debut album in only its first few weeks! What gives? And what surprises me even more is that I read in the Mirror yesterday that before 3 years ago, no one in the band had yet begun playing a musical instrument!! For those of you who are into the music scene, do you think these guys could actually make it in North America?
