Arctic Monkeys – Catapult
16 Nov 09
From covering Nick Cave in their live shows to this it’s becoming clear that Arctic Monkeys are fans of Nick Cave (With or without the Bad Seeds), hailing from their “Cornerstone” EP along with two others “Sketchead” and “Fright Lined Dining Room”. Catapult finds the band on good form, dropping Turners new found croon for a “Whatever people say I am, that’s what I’m not” era tone whilst keeping that new found love for all things Cave. It must be hard for a song like Catapult to be a B-side to the excellent “Cornerstone” but it pulls it off nicely, although not quite with the style of the aforementioned “Humbug” single.
See a picture of Alex Turner slowly changing colour with “Catapult” in the background above now folks.
