Alex Turner Says It's Hard To Perform Old Arctic Monkeys Songs In Concert
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.16.2014



In an interview with The Daily Star, Alex Turner revealed that it is hard for the Arctic Monkeys to play old songs in concert. Here are highlights:

On creative freedom allowing them to be successful: "Laurence Bell, from Domino, who owns the company, was who came to sign us in the first place. He allowed us to try different things. It's not a situation like you hear about with a label guy in the studio saying: ‘I was looking for this or that.'"

On playing old songs live: "Sometimes it's tough to get through one of the old ones live. You know, you don't feel like that anymore. When you tell the same joke 600 times, you won't hear what it is anymore, but then sometimes like the 601st time you might see something in it you didn't before."

On recording in Josh Homme's studio: Originally it was just getting us far away from this kind of comfortable environment, some version of ‘home'. The first thing we did over there was the third album and at that point we really wanted to tear up the rulebook and work with new people. So we went to Josh Homme's studio in the desert and made that Humbug record and that was a massive turning point."
