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!”
