Arctic Monkeys at Live in the City, Manchester Academy, October 3rd 2005

Before they hit the bigtime but definitely not before the fabled hype, the Arctic Monkeys got some good coverage, notably this live concert performance broadcast by the BBC.

At this point the Arctic Monkeys had only EP releases to their credit, self released at that for the first, yet this setlist shows they had the tunes that would later become their record breaking debut. The show was rather like the N.M.E. gigs, get a bunch of up-and-comers, put them on a stage together, make some money from the kids. This shows what a good record label media push, oh I mean 'internet word of mouth' *coughs*, can do for a band, as they were below the Nine Black Alps on the bill yet they've sold billions more albums, okay, maybe I exagerate a tad, but you know what I'm saying...

01. Intro
02. I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor
03. Fake Tales Of San Francisco
04. Still Take You Home
05. Perhaps Vampires Is A Bit Strong But.../Dancing Shoes
06. Mardy Bum
07. Sun Goes Down

Seems I made a mistake, or the guy I got this off was wrong, as it is the September show, Arctic Monkeys did play the same venue on the date I gave mind, so I cross-checked with Nine Black Alps on the etree database.
