Arctic Monkeys – next single

Really pleased that Arctic Monkeys are releasing When the Sun Goes Down on 16th January. Formerly called Scummy Man, then Scummy, and possible Red Lights, I do wish they would've released Mardy Bum instead. There's a nice long entry of what I think of this song in particular, to be found here

However, Scummy is indeed a good song and quite blunt in its intent, although Mardy Bum is undoubtedly my favourite single by them (There's several close up behind it in the favourite stakes, mind).

Make sure you buy When The Sun Goes Down when it's out!

    Surely Mardy Bum is a completely different song? When the Sun Goes Down is also known / formerly known as 'Scummy' – maybe that's what you were thinking of? Both are, however, great

    I wish they'd stop changing the names to their songs – it confuses me greatly. Also I'm pretty sure that When the Sun Goes Down is called Scummy in the mp3s I have too. Shame it's not Mardy Bum though.

  3. I don't know what you're talking about…EITHER you both had your funny reading eyes on, OR I did in fact have my head in the clouds when I wrote it and accidentally wrote the wrong one (even though I double checked beforehand) then got carried away…

    I tell you, it's a mystery.

    Either you're a bloomin' revisionist or I'm an idiot. Mr Jet Lag has meant a great deal of things haven't been making much sense this week, so I'll plump for the later.

    Personally i'm hoping that you're mistaken and it's actually a stunning Northern cover of the Elton/George classic 80s track.

    #don't disCARD me, baby no…
