It seems surprising that in the five or six years that music has been major online that it’s only now that a band has scored a number one using the Net. The Arctic Monkeys (should be Monkies no?) has worked the web for all its worth with daily communications and more than 130 versions or remixes of the band’s first single I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor in circulation. Of course, you’ve got to have something to build upon and these guys certainly have the ‘buzz’ about them, well OK the NME is excited.
