Arctic Monkeys didn't just use Josh Homme for a one-off album stand. Mainman Alex Turner affectionately states: "I'd like to continue, yeah. The thing is with Josh is he's in more than one band as well. I guess there's a timing element to that. But, yeah we'd love to do some more - we still have somewhere to go with him."

Despite being everyone's new favourite group, The Drums aren't quite as popular outside of their new band frenzy. Guitarist Jacob Graham admits: "None of us have any friends that aren't in this band. It's pathetic." Photo: Emilie Bailey

Marina & The Diamonds' frontwoman Marina Diamandis is lucky to have finished her debut album completely intact. "There was a point where I hated being in the studio and not focussing at all," she admitted. "I was all over the place, being a total prat. I'm surprised Liam [Howe, main producer] didn't hit me!"

Liam Gallagher justifies why it would be ridiculous to turn his back on the music industry: "There's no point in looking cool and having no tunes, is there?" Never a truer word said. Photo: PA Photos

Adam Green has an alternative career to fall back on if nobody likes his new album. The anti-folk hero also likes his art. "I've been working on a lot of sculptures and paintings. I've always been painting to some degree, but never with such vigour. Then there are all the sculptures I'm doing."

The Chapman Family's Kingsley Chapman wishes he'd written Motley Crue's classic 'Girls Girls Girls'. "If you'd written this you'd have made a fortune despite having limited ability and little talent (his words not ours) - you can still be 50-odd and have strippers onstage with you and dwarves breathing fire."

Manic Street Preachers' Nicky Wire is against everything that Radiohead stand for, in particular file-sharing: "When 'OK computer' was selling all the records, they didn't moan then about selling all the records. They only took risks afterwards." Photo: Andy Willsher

Mumford & Sons are swapping gale-force winds for the hot Indian sun. Last week the folk four-piece were battered by the elements in the making of their new video (which is coming to NME TV very soon) and, as a result, have decided to avoid the winter blues by joining Laura Marling for a special tour of India that will see them recording with local artists in December.

In a bid to improve his onstage arena presence, Alex Turner has turned to Kylie, Britney Spears and Beyonce. Until recently the Arctic Monkeys man had been an arena virgin but, with three big shows now under his belt, he is confident he knows how such events pan out."I learnt from Kylie that you can't be coy playing arenas."
