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.

Alex Turner knows how to grind a hook into any song. He finds the melody in two bar tunes that no one else could, and he then works around it, slowly piecing together the song. The EP is based on an idea that could go wrong or right, depending on how you perceive it. They're singing about success and fame, and the pressures the lifestyle brings to the table. It won't work most of the time, unless you have your style down to the grime. The Arctic Monkeys, once again delivering the fresh stereo sound, make this puppy work.
