This is my 4,000th post. That’s a pretty big number, so I figured I’d do something special for it.
As you know, as much as this is a music blog, I show a great deal of love and respect to Sheffield’s Arctic Monkeys. Ever since I’ve been a fan, I’ve been collecting anything and everything that I could get my hands on. Now it’s 2012, so if you want to find a song of theirs, you probably can. But sometimes it’s easier said than done, and often it helps to have everything in one place.
I decided to make a giant collection of all Arctic Monkeys rarities. I got all of the covers that they’ve done, as well as some cool stuff they played live.
There are other fan sites that probably do the same, but this is for those of us who don’t follow everything Arctic Monkeys, but are interested in hearing some of their rarer stuff.
So without further ado, here’s my Arctic Monkeys b-sides & rarities collection for you. Share the love.
