EVEN when they were pretending to be a youth club band whod accidentally struck gold, Arctic Monkeys always saw the bigger picture. Their seeming disdain for the trappings of pop helped mask a fierce ambition and then, as now, there were none more tightly rehearsed. Singer Alex Turner still mumbles between songs, which included a heroic tilt at Nick Caves Red Right Hand, but their expertly administered lighting would have been visible from outer space had they literally rather than metaphorically raised Brixton Academys roof. Conventions once mostly spurned, such as an encore, were delivered with good grace and Turner played his frontman role with more aplomb than hed previously dared to show. His Jagger-esque slouch was no surprise, although the classic rock star ending was, after the closing 505, where Turner walked off and the band followed one by one as the song faded. At this rate theyll be getting some choreography next time. Naturally, the older material was joyously received. There was no Fake Tales Of San Francisco or When The Sun Goes Down, but I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor remains an exhilarating injection of pop-punk adrenaline and a frenetic The View From The Afternoon showed Matt Helders is unquestionably the finest, hardest-hitting drummer of his generation. Earlier, Them Crooked Vultures, the supergroup featuring Led Zeppelins John Paul Jones, Foo Fighter Dave Grohl and Queen Of The Stone Age (and the Arctics producer) Josh Homme, made their British debut. Ear- testingly loud, they sizzled: I cant wait to see them again. pOp arctic Monkeys BrixtonAcademy HHHH JOHn aizlewOOd Monkeys attopof thetree Front runner: Alex Turner last night index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html
