My 13 year old told me yesterday that this is her favourite band. Bit of a bolt from the blue as i thought she was very much into girlie pop.

I know very little about them but pleased to see some rock making an impact. 

So...in the interests of finding common ground with my kid, where do I start with these? Are they good? What are their best songs?

Spotify. Early stuff was their best material imho. Can’t go wrong with much on the first releases. Alex Turner is very marmite. Talented but a bit kinda mental.

Quite surprised you never heard about them at the time. Huge impact very quickly in their profile and massive at festivals like TITP.

It’s also my 13 year old daughter’s favourite band, I noticed she was downstairs watching tv tonight which is almost unheard of, it was someone’s special subject on mastermind. 
My wife and me have zero musical ability so very pleasing when she asked for an acoustic guitar for Xmas and seems to be able to play it.

Don't bother, the last thing she needs at 13 is you cramping her style being down with the kids.

TBH&C is their best album. 

Agreed, by a distance. A brilliant album that filtered out all the bucket hat wearing, Dark fruit swilling Oasis listening plebs. Unfortunately The Car was awful

1. TBH&C
2. Suck it And See
3. AM
4. Humbug
5. WPSIATWIN
6. Favourite Worst Nightmares
7. The Car
