Toronto's NOW Magazine on the breakthrough by the Arctic Monkeys:

"What makes the Monkeys' feat even more impressive is that their quick rise to the top occurred without the conventional "hookers 'n' blow" promotional strategy or having hordes of street team members buy up mass quantities of their single from chart-reporting shops.
The press, radio and television were almost circumvented entirely in the group's audience-building process. MuchMusic recently declined an offer to interview the band. The Arctic Monkeys are the first real breakthrough act of the download era."

As befits any "breakthrough act," Arctic Monkeys are on MySpace.
