Arctic Monkeys - see the hype, BE the hype

Currently you can stream the hot shit Arctic Monkeys over at Scenesters and if you're REALLY buying what the NME is selling you can see them at Mercury Lounge if you HURRY.

Is it me or does all this Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party, Arctic Monkeys nonsense seem eerily similar to that Fruit Stripe gum? You know the stuff, great for like 25 seconds before it loses all appeal and then within a minute you've spit it out.

Btw, of course Brooklyn Vegan beat me to this information - thought I'd post it up anyway still in case any of you farmers don't read that site. And, let's be honest, I really just wanted to jump at this chance to compare bands like them to crappy chewing gum for children.
