Arctic Monkeys: the Sheffield post-punk revival

Arctic Monkeys are a four-piece indie rock/post-punk revival band from High Green, a suburb of Sheffield, England. Their first two singles, "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" and "When the Sun Goes Down", both went straight to number one in the UK Singles Chart, and the band's debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, holds the record for the largest first week sales of a debut album in UK history [1] and won the 2006 Mercury Prize. The band won "Best New Act" at the 2006 Brit Awards, and became the first band to win NME Awards for "Best New Band" and "Best British Band" in the same year.
Originally established in 2002, the band currently consists of Alex Turner on lead vocals and guitar, Jamie Cook playing rhythm guitar, Matt Helders on drums and backing vocals and Nick O'Malley, bass guitarist (formerly Andy Nicholson).
