Arctic Monkeys Vinyl, CD & tapes by Arctic Monkeys at Norman Records

The Arctic Monkeys have enjoyed a meteoric rise from scrappy northern indie-rockers to strutting stadium fillers, unafraid to evolve their sound on their own terms. Starting out, the Sheffield lads avoided big money offers to sign up with independent...read more »

Who The F**K Are The Arctic Monkeys

The title of this 2006 EP by Sheffield's finest was on of the many excuses I used to put me off listening to them in their early days. But it was me who lost out as this 5 track EP continued the meteoric rise of the band as they showcased an innate wit and ability to document kitchen sink dramas. It might also have been an early example of the band following their muse as lead track View From The Afternoon was surely a hit in waiting but the 5 track format disqualified it from chart entry. Pioneers you see, even then.

Arctic Monkeys
Whatever People Say I Am

Debut album from Los Angeles' neé Sheffield's finest from back when they were four scrappy kids with big fringes, before the smart shirts and slicked back hair. Even now the young Alex Turner's lyrics are genuinely impressive in how vivid a vision of the People's Republic of South Yorkshire they can create.

Arctic Monkeys
Brianstorm

Brianstorm  - see what they did there? This was the first single to be taken from Arctic Monkeys second album Favourite Worst Nightmare and was early proof that their debut was no flash in the pan. It's a familiar storming racket with Alex Turner's dextrous, humorous lyrics atop swirling guitars and clattering drums. That rascal himself Dizzee Rascal turns up on the B side for an unlikely collaboration.

Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair

Thankfully Domino keep these Arctic Monkeys 7"s in print  - each a little essential part of their history. We were all worried about Arctic Monkeys at this stage thinking they'd lost their personas and gone down a Queens of the Stone Age-produced vacuum but with the benefit of hindsight and that they got out the other side it seems somewhat clearer what they were doing. Features non LP B side I.D.S.T.

Alex Turner
Submarine (Original Songs)

Submarine was the debut film from actor and director Richard Ayoade. The coming of age drama was a perfect vehicle for a soundtrack by Arctic Monkeys Alex Turner. Showcasing a more mature and reflective side to his songwriting, these six mostly acoustic offerings point the way towards his future work as part of the Last Shadow Puppets. As always lyrically dextrous, this is an overlooked but essential part of his back catalogue.

Arctic Monkeys
Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino

The long-awaited return of those indie rock archetypes Arctic Monkeys. Five years after 2013’s 'AM', 'Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino' is the next chapter in their journey from dishevelled Sheffield boys of the noughties to slick and swaggering Americanised rock gang. Or, how Alex Turner went from scruffy to professional.

Arctic Monkeys
AM

I have to admit (I'm embarrassed by this) I couldn't work out why Arctic Monkeys called their fifth album AM. Arctic Monkeys. No still don't get it. Anyway after a couple of mixed quality albums where they grew their hairs out and recorded in America, the Sheffield four piece returned with a vengeance on perhaps their most commercially successful album to date. It blended their sound with elements of hard rock, hip-hop and soul and contained several songs that have become concert staples. Barely anything on it suggested where they were headed next but this could almost be seen as Arctic Monkeys Party album before the Pet Sounds of Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino.

Arctic Monkeys
Suck It And See

Suck it and See was the fourth album by Sheffield rascals Arctic Monkeys and followed up the dark and divisive Humbug with a return to their pop-friendly stadium-filling best. Tracks like Black Treacle confirmed that Alex Turner still had the ability to put thoughtful and entertaining prose to the band's muscly guitar rock and the only thing lacking was a good sleeve...though that is a nice shade of cream.

Arctic Monkeys
My Propeller

My Propeller was initially taken from the Arctic Monkeys third album Humbug. It showcases the darker sound of the album as the Sheffield scamps started to grow up and explore more mature territories. What it lacks in tunefulness it makes up in a kind of brooding intensity. 7" re-press on Domino with Joining the Dots on t'other side. 

Arctic Monkeys
Humbug

'Humbug' was the third album from Sheffield mainstays Arctic Monkeys and the first recorded with producer Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age). it showcases a more widescreen sound from the band inspired by the desert studio in which it was recorded. It is still full to the brim though, of Alex Turner's lyrical dexterity and the band's catchy melodies, particularly on 'Cornerstone' which would become one of their classic pieces of northern English storytelling.

Arctic Monkeys
Favourite Worst Nightmare

Favourite Worst Nightmare was the second album by Arctic Monkeys and proved beyond doubt that the Sheffield rascals were no flash-in-the-pan. It is full of their high octane and highly original form of indie rock and boasts future classics such as Brianstorm, Teddy Picker and Fluorescent Adolescent. A harder and more energised album than their debut, it is the last time the band played with a completely straight bat before their more thoughtful and expansive later work.
