Get on your dancing shoes
There's one thing on your mind
Hoping they're looking for you
Sure you'll be rummaging through
Oh, and the shit, shock, horror
You've seen your future bride
Yeah, but it's oh so absurd
For you to say the first word
So you're waiting and waiting and

The only reason that you came
So what you scared for?
Well, don't you always do the same?
It's what you're there for, don't you know?

The lights are flashing
Down in here tonight
And some might exchange a glance
But keep pretending to dance
Don't act like it's not happening
As if it's impolite
To go and mention your name
Instead you'll just do the same
As they all do and hope for the best

The only reason that you came
So what you scared for?
Well, don't you always do the same?
It's what you're there for but no

Get on your dancing shoes
You sexy little swine
Hoping they're looking for you
Sure you'll be rummaging through
And I said the shit, shock, horror
You've seen your future bride, yeah
Yeah, but it's, oh, so absurd
For you to say the first word
So you're waiting and waiting

My thoughts, exactly 
This album is probably still their best, or at least most acute in terms of social observation.

Brilliant...!
I like a good sneer, occasionally.

How little you seem to know about life, Weedhopper...

Reminds me of an angry Joe Jackson.
A good thing...

Yeah, ..thanks, pretty good 'cause of the the latin Santana-touch, but too harsh for my nerves too.

Alright, some good hard driving sounds ... sometimes RP can be a bit too soft IMO.  Needs more edge from time to time.
    Public is dancing.
way cool
I have missed this band until now. Better late than never. I need to break my mundane 70's, 80.s etc habit. I like the energy.
Ok.. it's ok.. but Zeppelin's coming up next & I'll enjoy them more.... .... as head banging is to rock n' roll ... that's my opinion.
Okay, I give in. I tried not to like these guys but I do. They rock!
The word from SXSW is that they were underwhelming live. The crowd began leaving after just a few numbers. But I personally think their album is fresh and interesting.
Yum! :dancingbanana_2:

Oh, Catmaven. Get on your dancing shoes, you sexy little swine.
This is a terrific hard-driving rock-and-roll album. All of you who are obsessing about whether they live up to the hype need to just ignore the hype and listen to the music.

They're not. They're the ordinary common or garden variety of shite

"Get on your dancin' shoes, you sexy little swine"...what a classic rock and roll line. Great song, great album.

Do u think this is noise....como to live to romania.......u will die in one week....
I live in Spain. It has been officially declared to be the noisiest country in Europe. My collegue sitting next to me is from Romania. He says Spain is noisier, except for walking in the middle of Bucharest, maybe. But this stuff coming out of the speakers at the moment is just plain :yell: NOISE
As much as I want to dislike this album and band, they write some damn-catchy tunes. Yes, it's not ground-breaking or earth-shattering. Yes, it's derrivative but what isn't nowadays?

Why do I find this completely hysterical!! :roflol:

It is more of the vocal style.

Is that Bode Miller on the album cover? Hell yeah, go USA Ski Team!

They're fine, but I am not quite sure what all the hysteria is about. I have the album, and there's a couple of decent tracks, but two-thirds of it is filler. Yawwwwn.
So this is the new "it" band, eh? This reporter is not impressed.
as a mutant Brit Bastard I am supposed to luv these post Libertines sound a likes....BBC6 has been playing them non-stop.......come see them @ South by Southwest in Austin in a couple of weeks...& you will understand..">

I really haven't check because I listen in the background throughout the day, but... Does Arctic Monkeys get airtime multiple times daily now? Or are my days running together?
Twice today, I do believe. Unless my days are running together too :ask:

Energic yet relatively nice.

There currently seems to be a gazillion bands like this; format is something like: very straight cornery rhythm, simple chord structure, basic chords (no jazzy dim/add/sus/embellishment stuff going on), instruments: 2 guitars, bass, drum (no synth), yelling lead singer, guitars: telecasters or es335 (no effects), slightly overdriven amps (preferably orange/fender), lots of strumming, beatles style long hair, lots of energy, hmm that seems about it. Having said that, I do like some of them, namely this band and also "Bloc Party".
good energetic jam for an early Friday morning.....it's gonna be a good day! :bananajam:
Thank god my mute button is close at hand!

Funny, I was thinking the same thing and about to post the same thought! Glad to see Adam's still getting work :cheesygrin:
Not "the only reason that you came" for, but this kind of sound sure makes you stay tuned to RP. :clap:
Again, am conflicted! This song really rocks. Am not listening to the lyrics. Am ignoring the offensive smoker photo on the album cover. What great rock instrumentation, hard-rock windup at the end--see conflicted emoticons below. :bananapiano: :dancingbanana_2: :dancingbanana: :cowboy: :drummer: :guitarist: :wall: :good-vibes:
These guys are way overplayed on RP. Could they be the new U2? :wink:
Lots of noise from Europe about this band...and "noise" is what I would call their music. They deserve to be an ephemeral band, nothing more. Two years from now, they will barely be a blip in our memories. Like Elastica. They don't get the pub, but BRMC (played a bit ago) are much better.
These guys really rock! I've liked every song I've heard so far. :dancingbanana: :bananajam: :bananapiano: :drummer:
Artic Monkeys....Death Cab for Cutie....My Morning Jacket Wots wit all the disconnected titling?
this CD still not for sale in the US! come on! we're waiting!
Why always the reference to other british bands eg. Coldplay, when a new British rock band come out.. "lively alternative to Coldplay" I dont get it.. Arctic monkeys have been around for donkeys, being an internet band to start with: "They first started to gain the attention of the mainstream public when their demos were made available to download on the internet in late 2004. Around this time they began to receive a great deal of attention from BBC Radio 1 and the British tabloid press for their catchy songs and witty lyrics. Their appearance on the Carling Stage at the 2005 Reading and Leeds Festivals was hyped by much of the music press – NME in particular – and the band was received by an unusually large crowd for the billing they played. The critically acclaimed performance even included spontaneous sing-alongs from the band's most devoted fans. Impressively, this included tracks that were only available as demos on the Internet" Is Coldplay the ONLY band you guys hear from Blighty in foreign lands?
sold out in SF next month already...
This is the new "hot" group in UK - fastest first album sales in yonks, or something like that. Well it seems like a more lively alternative to coldplay or radiohead, anyway, tho its hard to see from this one song wot orl the fuss is abaht But then I'm a deaf idiot when it comes to really making out the lyric
Great, great hard rock sound! But some of the lyrics are offensive. I am conflicted. :bananajam: :bananajumprope: :bananasplit: :beat: :eh: :naughty: :rolleyes: :whipit: :bananasplit: :dancingbanana_2: :dancingbanana: :propeller:
its refreshing to hear something this energetic on RP
This gets a five-nanner rating! :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:
