About the album Who the Fuck Are Arctic Monkeys by Arctic Monkeys

album Who the Fuck Are Arctic Monkeys by Arctic Monkeys"Who the Fuck Are Arctic Monkeys?" is the second EP by Sheffield indie rock band Arctic Monkeys, first released on 24 April 2006. The EP features "The View from the Afternoon", the opening track of their debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, along with four other songs."The View from the Afternoon" was originally expected to be the band's third single following UK Number Ones "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" and "When the Sun Goes Down", but the band announced in March 2006 that their next record would in fact be a 5-track EP, thereby disqualifying it from the UK singles and albums charts due to the EP being too long to be a single and being too cheap to be an album. With "The View from the Afternoon" as the A-side, the remainder of the EP is made up of new material, although "Cigarette Smoker Fiona" is a reworking of "Cigarette Smoke" - one of the band's earlier songs that formed part of the "Beneath the Boardwalk" collection of demo CDs."Despair in the Departure Lounge" was premiered at a gig in the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, although it was played by Alex Turner alone due to Andy Nicholson blowing his bass amp.Although the language content of the EP resulted in less radio airplay than their earlier releases, the nature of the band's rise to fame and its lack of reliance on radio meant that this was not a concern for the band.The photograph on the cover was taken by Timm Cleasby Photography.
