They were formed from a jamming session in 2006, and from hereon, this fantastic Arctic Monkeys tribute band became a phenomenon in their own right, travelling the UK and Europe with numerous tours. The demand for their fantastic tribute is happening now more than ever.
Firmly established on the tribute scene, their live show has the power, passion and the creative edge to whip audiences into a frenzy when delivering the powerful tunes of the Arctic Monkeys the way they should be.
Their reputation grew very quickly and in 2009 received approval from close relations to the Arctic’s as well as Chris McClure (from the front cover of the album ‘Whatever People Say I am, That’s What I’m Not’ and brother of lead singer – Jon McClure, from Reverend and the Makers).
There have been too many highlights to mention them all but main ones include the 2010 Oxegen Festival in Ireland and the Liverpool Mathew Street Festival, playing in front of 50,000 plus people as well as interviews and appearances in Q Magazine, MTV and Sky News.
Rarely is there a tribute band that can rival the original yet these 4 lads from Wolverhampton mimic Turner, Cook, O’Mally and Helders style perfectly.
“In the middle of a steaming crowd, a couple of dozen burly young men are hurling themselves around in time to the music, sending glasses, bottles and the occasional teenage girl flying. At one point the scrum spills into the band itself, knocking over microphones and cymbals. As the song finishes, the pub landlord takes to the stage and appeals for calm. It’s a great set by a great band, lads, but let’s chill out a bit, eh?’ It is, in short, what you might expect from a live performance featuring the music of Britain’s most explosive rock outfit. Except the musicians on stage are not the Arctic Monkeys, Sheffield’s internet phenomenon. They are the Antarctic Monkeys, four blokes from Wolverhampton giving a brilliant musical impression of the real thing”.
