i've just finished watching top of the pops and i was slightly taken a-back when i saw that Arctic Monkeys where number one with their track 'I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor'
i posted a topic about these guys a while back but no one replied in it i dont think - forgive me if iam wrong. but now i think that these are the hottest band to come from the UK in a long time, and i was wondering if what you guys think?
from the BBC website....
Sheffield rock band the Arctic Monkeys have topped the UK singles charts with their debut track, after building up a fan base on the internet.
I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor trumped pop trio the Sugababes after three weeks in the number one spot.
Arctic Monkeys gained a significant following thanks to the marketing power of the internet, and were eventually signed by Domino Records.......
......Arctic Monkeys were widely predicted to enter the charts at number one.
The band has been communicating with fans almost daily on their forum, and concerts have sold out around the UK. The buzz was picked up by record label Domino, home of Franz Ferdinand, who signed them in June 2005.
