From scummy street vagabonds to bullshitting indie bands, Arctic Monkeys’ lyrics are populated by a cast of colourful characters, bringing the music to vibrant life.But who are they and what from Alex Turner’s real life inspired them?They formed the Last Shadow Puppets, an ambitious project that branched out of the Monkeys' garage-y sound, combining doo-wop, spaghetti-Western film music and big orchestrations courtesy of Arcade Fire's Owen Pallett."We were very aware we were making a record that we shouldn't really be making," says Turner of the Puppets' 2008 debut.After college, Turner's parents reluctantly agreed to let him defer university for one year to pursue his musical ambitions.During this time, he worked as a barman at the Sheffield venue The Boardwalk.From what we can tell from Taylor's Instagram feed, Taylor is a natural blonde, she has a gorgeous dog called Scoot, has tattoos and isn't afraid of showing off her body.Something good will come out of all things yet--And it will be golden and eternal just like that--There's no need to say another word.
The English singer-guitarist was 20 when his band Arctic Monkeys performed on and played a very hyped show at the Bowery Ballroom. It was like a fucking runaway train in those days." At the time, the Monkeys had just topped the U. charts with a debut album that became the fastest-selling LP in British history.
The only child of two teachers, Turner was raised in the Sheffield suburb of High Green.
Turner has also recorded with his side-project The Last Shadow Puppets and as a solo artist for the Submarine (2010) movie soundtrack.
What the band have said: Andy: “Fucking scary people.” Alex: “You’d see a bloke with a carrier bag or summat and it’s like, ‘What the fuck is he doing her at this time of the night?
’ Or you’d be packing your guitars away and somebody’d walk past and be like ‘How much is one of them worth?
