"In keeping spirits with the festival, during "Don’t Sit Down," Alex Turner changed the line, "bite the lightning," to "Ride the Lightning,” and pointed across the field at the Orion stage where Metallica’s stage hands were gearing up for the band to play said album in full.” [x]
*AM’s last performance of the era
I subscribe to an English music weekly called New Musical Express. In 2006, they started writing about this band from Sheffield. I bought all their singles, bought all their albums, and every time they played in California, I went and saw them play except I was too fucking chicken shit to go back and say hello to them cause I didn’t think I was cool enough cause I was just a drummer in an American heavy metal band. But it’s a fucking dream come true and this makes me look really good in my son’s eyes cause he’s an even bigger Arctic Monkeys fan. So please, give it the fuck up for the coolest of the cool, from Sheffield, or shall I say under the rubble in front of the Ritz, the Arctic Monkeys.
Orion festival, this is Jamie Cook and he plays the brown guitar in Arctic Monkeys, and he’s from High Green motherfucker
Currently at Orion… thanks natalija.
Currently at the Orion Fest/AM’s last gig of this era… the one that we won’t be able to watch.
Hey, remember that party we told you about? The one where we’ll jump in ‘couches’ and dance and watch full recordings of select SIAS performances while we weep because Orion will not be broadcasting AM’s set today? Well, that’s still happening in about… say, 15 minutes?
I'm opening the chat now but will start the videos by 8PM EST. Mmkay? See you.
