Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not

Release Date : 23/01/06 (UK)

The Debut album release by the band was critically acclaimed and changed the face of Indie music in the UK for ever. Famously sporting the face of Chris McClure smoking a cigarette, the album became the fastest selling debut rock album in British history, selling just under 120,000 copies on it's first day! By the end of the week, the album had sold 363,735 copies - more than the rest of the Top 20 combined.

The original release date for this album was the 30th of January but due to the album being leaked over a month before the release date, it was released earlier, it still managed to hit the number one spot comfortably.

Who The Fuck Are Arctic Monkeys? - EP

Who the Fuck Are Arctic Monkeys?

Release Date : 24/04/06 (UK)

The second EP release by the Arctic Monkeys. The 5-track EP was released to satisfy the fans while touring the UK and the rest of the world. Although the lead track "The View From The Afternoon" was anticipated as the second single, it was released on this which was too big to qualify as a single and too small to class as an album. But then again, anticipation has a habit to set you up for disappointment.
