Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner for spoken word release

Postby fidelity » Sat Sep 06, 2008 7:45 am

Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner will release a recording of him reading an original short story, 'The Choice Of Three', on October 13.

The recording of the reading of the story, written by Turner, will appear on a compilation helmed by his band-mate, drummer Matt Helders, as part of the 'Late Night Tales' compilation series.

As previously-reported, Matt Helders' 'Late Night Tales' compilation will feature songs from the likes of Roots Manuva, The Rapture and The Coral.

Turner's spoken-word piece will close the album.

The story begins: "In the tunnel I noticed I had a choice of three. While I thought it very kind of them to offer me this I do wonder if they realised what a dilemma they were sending to face me.

"The trouble was if I looked at your reflection in the left window I missed the actual image of you and your reflection in the right, and if I looked at the right I had the same problem the other way around."

Turner will read a sequel to the story at the launch party of the album, at north London's Lock Tavern on October 19.
"That Kate Moss stuff in the papers was pretty funny," Alex explained. "She was meant to have rung me mum up and me mum said 'leave my son alone'!"
