They're from Sheffield

Jack White has reaffirmed his love for the Arctic Monkeys – though admits he’s yet to see the band play live.

White first revealed his respect for the Sheffield band when The White Stripes toured the UK last year, declaring ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ his favourite song of the moment.

Now returning with The Raconteurs the guitarist has again praised Alex Turner’s men.

“I love the Arctic Monkeys,” Jack White told MTV.co.uk. “Who doesn’t? I’d love to see them live, but haven’t got round to it yet. I never get to see bands because I’m never in the same town for more than two seconds.”

When asked, he joked that he’d like to “work” with the band. “We’ll start with the gardening and move on to the housework,” he said.
