More fings wot's like th'other

Maybe you all know the Arctic Monkeys. You should, but if you don't, they are a foursome out of Sheffield England. Legend has it that two neighbors asked their parents for guitars for Christmas five years ago and then talked a schoolmate into buying a drum kit, got another friend who actually already played the bass and then emerged fully formed from the skull of Athena (five points to the first person to place the allusion.) Ultra-hyped at this point, but ultra-charming.
