And the Arctic Monkeys are cool. I'm not even a massive crying-my-eyes-out-on-the-frontline fan. I like some of their songs but haven't seen them live or anything. But after reading their interview today on Shortlist, I just love them more and really want to go to a gig. A bit late on the run, I know, there were about 345 Arctic Monkeys' gigs just in Portugal (let alone London!) that I've missed already but I'm sure they'll come again, wherever I am. And be even more awesome.
My favourite bit of the interview:
MH: You get a few interesting ones on the guestlist. Simon Pegg came down the other day.
NO: Jimmy Page came to Earls Court.
MH: Yeah, we had a chat with Jimmy. Bit of pressure.
JC: Do you think he’s good at ping pong? I bet he plays...
AT: Traditional grip? Yeah, he f*cking does, doesn’t he?
NO: Fire Pony.
