Released: January 2006
The case for Alex Turner as indie poet laureate is nowhere better served than on this closing track from their debut. The ‘bad side of town’ here is dangerously lug-headed and crassly unfashionable. Turner stands stock-still, taking the temperature of a land over the wall where “there’s only music so that’s there’s new ringtones.” But even as the key janglers are paraded before us, Turner waits for the final verse before solemnly admitting "over there, there’s friends of mine," drawing hundreds of invisible pictures of what happened in the years between the innocence of childhood and the lurching advent of adulthood.
