ALL OF THE MONKEYS AIN’T IN THE ZOO

Arctic Monkeys further blur the Britpop lines

In today’s turnover, a six-year career should be counted in dog years, and Arctic Monkeys have not slouched during their wild trajectory; 2006’s “I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor,” as British a single as the Queen is herself, propelled their album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, to become the bestselling debut in U.K. history, and this summer’s Humbug brought in newbie producer Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) for thicker, more sinister rock than their post-punk prior. It’s been said endlessly, but confirmed now: They’re young, but they’ve got it down, and they’re the utter professionals of the British scene. With Screaming Females.
