Indie Classics: Arctic Monkeys- Mardy Bum

Arctic Monkeys- Mardy Bum

If you want a song that isn’t “I Bet You Look Good…” that captures the essence of first-wave Arctic Monkeys then it is early days fan favourite Mardy Bum. It could’ve been released anytime the past century how relatable, connective and engaging a song it is.

 

Do you want to hear an old Monkeys tune everybody, one that we don’t get out very often?

Modern day Alex Turner is a long way from his primitive Sheffield roots and so having this song backed by a full orchestra, while headlining glastonbury with his retro-futuristic hair and posturing was pretty special.
