The four gents of Arctic Monkeys are the least likely group of cheeky chappies to have practically their whole new album on the British singles charts. Alex Turner and Co. worked their sheepish, popped-collar charm as hard as they could during their main stage set. However, they have a way to go before their charisma is as kinetic as their tunes.
But jeez, what tunes. The curmudgeons who slagged them as overrated before they were properly rated at all now have to admit that they know from herky-jerky riffs and scathing wit. Their new record "Favourite Worst Nightmare" doesn't stray far from their debut, but the songs sounded more textured and thoughtful with an outdoor stage to breathe in. "Brianstorm," a pointed kiss-off to a hanger-on, dripped with sarcasm and prickly, intertwined guitars, while crowd-pleasers "I Bet You Look Good On the Dancefloor" and the slinky "Fake Tales of San Francisco" worked the young audience into a gleeful tizzy.
Turner still doesn't seem fazed, or even mildly amused, by his Arctic Monkeys' meteoric success. His stage presence could probably benefit from an acknowledgement that people really, really like his band, be it a bit more dancing or an even blacker tongue. But for four loutish kids who seemed a safe bet for a flash in the pan, darned if they aren't as flashy as ever, at least on record.
