NME.com report that Arctic Monkeys have confirmed that their debut album,
‘Whatever People Say I Am That’s What I’m Not’, got its title from a line of
dialogue in classic sixties movie ‘Saturday Night And Sunday Morning’ which
stars a young Albert Finney. The full line is: “Whatever people say I am,
that’s what I am not. Because they don’t know a bloody thing about me. God
knows what I am.”
Elsewhere in Arctic Monkeys news, the band played a cover of Girls Aloud’s
catchy pop tune ‘Love Machine’ live on Jo Whiley’s Radio 1 show yesterday.
Asked why they picked the song to play, they simply said: “We just wanted to
play it,” which is why you gotta love Arctic Monkeys, almost as much as
Richard Archer. Perhaps even a little more. Because they’re northerners.
