Welcome back to Groundbreakers. A little late on parade but hope all you guys had a great Xmas and New Year! So for our first show of 2012 we had Cameron Ward with us showcasing the Arctic Monkeys debut - Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not (2006)
Cameron decided on this album for a few reasons. The origins of the band; being based around near his home town and sounding “Local” to the area. The second is due to the widespread success of such a young act and the influence the album had on the musical scene of the time and the final, and probably biggest reason is due to the story that each song tells in a way that can either be related to past mischiefs or to more “taboo” subjects.
Whilst originally I wasn’t of the singles from the album, I was however by the end of the show more impressed by the al;bum, leading to the final success and seal approval. The main reasons being due to the relate-ability and also the bravery of such a young band to risk writing and performing songs that covered such “Taboo” subjects and still pulling it off.
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED - Seal Approved.
