Arctic Monkeys - Five Minutes With
Label: Bang Bang
Format: CDS


Debut single from perky Libertines-style Sheffield punks, Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys hail from Sheffield, and have just been in a bidding war which Domino have won. 'Five Minutes' is their debut and appears on 7" and CDS, both of which have sold out in pre sales and within hours of being in the indie shops. 'Fake Tales of San Francisco', the opening track, is perky and punky with every instrument having its say and all played with street wise attitude. It is very refreshing and eye opening in a worldin which the so many indie bands sound very similia. Imagine the Libertines if they could get on. 'From the Ritz to the Rubble' its other number, again recalls the Libertines. It has a spoken word style vocal, and thrashy guitars which are played in a mad pogoing fashion.

Track Listing:-
1 Fake Tales Of San Francisco
2 From The Ritz To The Rubble
