There's absolutely only one reason to post about latest NME-blessed flash-in-the-pan "saviours of rock'n'roll," The Arctic Monkeys -- and that's when they cover Girls Aloud's "Love Machine." I ganked this off the Interschitzel, it was recorded live on the BBC's RadioOne. The Arctic Monkeys' interpretation of this er, classic cements the fact that they really are the most overrated band in the entire universe right now. So, I'm including the original, as a palate cleanser. (My suggestion: someone really needs to do this as a bluegrass cover, obvs.) But I digress -- long live Girls Aloud, the best prefab pop band around. And you can quote me on that.
The Rich Girls Are Weeping is curated by super best friends Cindy Hotpoint & Pinkie Von Bloom. (And yes, they took the name from the Brian Eno song "Cindy Tells Me.") They formerly lived in Austin, Texas but are now based in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
