More Death Ramps Conspiracies - Plot continues...

Postby arctic » Fri Dec 14, 2007 9:15 pm

Another twist in the tale of the death ramps has surfaced lately. Involving a domain name** now. www.deathramps.com

You maybe wondering where there is a place for this on an Arctic Monkeys website. So we will explain vaguely...

The band announced in <a href='http://www.arctic-monkeys.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2048' target='_blank'>October</a> they were to release <b>Teddy Picker</b> as the third single from Favourite Worst Nightmare.
The band <a href='http://www.arctic-monkeys.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2079' target='_blank'>then announced</a> they were to release the single with the B-Sides <b>Death Ramps</b> and the Nettles (previously played live).

Domino <a href='http://www.arctic-monkeys.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2104' target='_blank'>then announced</a> that a band (signed under their label) named <b>Death Ramps</b> were to release a <a href='http://www.arctic-monkeys.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2104' target='_blank'>new limited edition</a> single (250 copies) on <a href='http://www.dominorecordco.com/site/index.php?page=releases&releaseID=747' target='_blank'>white label vinyl</a> along with a b-side named Nettles. They did not announce who the band were just <a href='http://www.arctic-monkeys.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2104' target='_blank'>listed a clue</a>.
The band on the vinyl turned out to be the Arctic Monkeys in disguise.
<b>deathramps.com</b> and <b>deathramps.co.uk</b> were registered on the 27th September 2007 and their homepages simply features a poem (see below) written by Alex Turner.

From what we can tell it's written by Alex Turner (it is his handwriting) and reads:

<blockquote>AFTER THE FANFARE
STOPPED GUSHING
AND THE HORNS (WHERE*)WERE PACKED
AWAY IN CASES *CASED IN
FINGER MARKED DUST
AND
THE FLAGS LAY SCRUNCHED
HAVING TURNED (THERE*)THEIR BASICS
ON THE BREEZE
AROUSAL DRIPPED IN THE SHAPE OF
TEARS, (BEGGING IN*)
CONGREGATING IN A LUMPY
PUDDLE THAT BEGGED
YOU TO DIP YOUR
SPOON!

*SPELLING MISTAKE/CORRECTION</blockquote>

So, the plot thickens and rumours continue to circulate about potential secret gigs under the name.

**What's a domain name? The address of the website like www.arctic-monkeys.com

I don't think they're actually made by the band.
Go ahead and play the blues if it makes you happy.

THE DEATH RAMPS

Postby Guest » Tue Dec 18, 2007 7:14 pm

IN A RECENT INTERVIEW IN THE GAURDIAN WITH ALEX TURNER AND RICHARD HAWLEY ALEX SAYS The Death Ramps is my favourite name for a band. Or just Death Ramp.
STATING THE REASON BEACAUSE
When we were kids, there were loads of hills and woods where you'd go and ride your bike. We called them death ramps. They probably weren't that deadly.
