Teddy Picker (EP)
Released: Dec 2007
Label: Domino Recording Co.
It may be a bit soon for Arctic Monkeys to decry the pitfalls of fame, but "Teddy Picker," the third single from their sophomore LP, offers a laundry list of woes from the disillusioned rock stars. For those of you who seek the spotlight, take heed: "don't be surprised when you get bent over." Of the four-song collection, the driving beat of the title single makes it the only Arctic Monkeys' offering; the three B-sides are co-credited to Death Ramps (the band's pseudonym). They are: "Bad Woman," which struts with a riff from Mancini's "Peter Gunn," a limp instrumental and the jarring closer, "Nettles." Various Artists - Teddy Picker 2008-13-25
