Footage of Big Day Out performance on YouTube

The Arctic Monkeys have played a new song at the Big Day Out festival in Australia, and some kind soul has videod his telly to upload it onto YouTube.

The ghost of George Formby seems to have been banished from new track 'Crying Lightning', which dispenses with the cheeky monkey rinky dink of yore for some strident and gloomy guitar lines, and solid vocal delivery from Alex Turner. All about annoying people on rainy afternoons, apparently. The Quietus knows a thing or two about that...

Anyway.
