proud home of the human league and the cockers (both joe and jarvis), sheffield, england has declared itself the birthplace of electronic pop. but don't let that fool you, sheffield is also home to def leppard. and my favorite new lyrical gangsters - arctic monkeys.

a bit more info on the cheeky monkeys: often genre-d as the libertines meet the streets (a.k.a. crack). legend has it, this is how the band earned their name. recently signed with domino, they don't even have an album yet. but at live shows the singer actually has to ask permission to sing his own chorus. and lastly, while mp3-swapping with a guy in sheffield for more of their tracks (shut up) i was offered any arctic monkey i wanted, "except matt, because he has a girlfriend."

try these on for size.
