Arctic Monkeys - was their success manufactured?

There are rumours that the band's phenomenal surge to success was somehow engineered by manipulating stories on the internet. But Stuart Knight of X-Taster (who work for Domino, the Arctic Monkeys label) has denied this.

Their success is the genuine article.

So be it.

Arctic Monkeys News 1

The British press is catching on to the Arctic Monkeys at last. There was a piece in the Observer Magazine at the weekend, 4 pages of pretty good stuff. Plenty of background, a good appreciation of their stage impact (wow!) and very positive about the music.

The Arctic Monkeys are mainstream!

Please let me know of further news about the guys that you spot.
