Alex Turner at Mercury Lounge, November 15, 2005. This was Arctic Monkey’s first show in the US. They came to sound check straight from the airport and were all a bit shell shocked when I met them. It was a great show. They were supposed to play two nights at Mercury but got bumped up to Bowery Ballroom the next night. Their manager told them that Bowie was coming the next night and they were just like “Holy shit!”

Arctic Monkeys debut album “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not” booklet. 

It’s a shame, like, that the theme and tone and…story of their first album became such a…obsession point? Because it’s so fucking beautiful and authentic and it should absolutely never be repeated but rather just celebrated for having been so wholly and so brilliantly what it was. But like with every great moment loads of people just wanted it to happen again and again and didn’t anyone realize the whole fucking point is it can’t? That the whole fucking point about a song like A Certain Romance about how you’re never going to leave the place you love is that you will? That you have to?

Arctic Monkeys In New York: The Outtakes
09 April 2014
It was mid-january in a New York studio in midtown. Arctic Monkeys flew in the night before from LA to have their photographs taken for Esquire, and also to perform “Do I Wanna Know?” on The Late Show With David Letterman that evening.
They were a little nervous about playing later (their first performance of the year), and a little hungover too, having spent the previous evening up late drinking with their friend Miles Kane.
But despite their sore heads and the cold weather, they were on good form throughout; the most laid-back, good-natured, and obliging group of lads you could hope to meet, especially ones that come with the tag ‘greatest rock band in the world’.
Here we’ve compiled a selection of extra shots from photographer Simon Emmett’s brilliant shoot.
