And more to the point, can you buy one? Yes, you can.

Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner caused quite a stir with his new look. Gone are the skinny jeans and disheveled hair, replaced by a more refined suit and slicked-back hair. But perhaps the most surprising change is Turner’s new choice of accessory: a vacuum cleaner.

So why exactly is Alex Turner using a vacuum cleaner onstage? It’s still unclear, but one thing is certain: it’s definitely getting people talking.

The lyrics of I Wanna Be Yours is the likely clue as they include the line I wanna be your vacuum cleaner, breathing in your dust”.

If you are an Arctic Monkeys fan, you might want to avail yourself of the vacuum cleaner you see in the now iconic image above.

That vacuum cleaner Alex Turner is using while wearing the white suit is a Sebo Automatic X, rather like this one.

Now, there are a few different versions and colours, but they’re all pretty much the same bar the accessories that come with them.

The one in the original photo has a yellow power cord which tells us it is an American commercial model, possibly badged as a Windsor in the US. But it’s certainly an X series made by Stein & Co in Germany which sells their vacuums under a few brands, Sebo being the largest and most well-known.

In the UK market, the black machines are all Sebo Automatic X machines. They are actually one of the best vacuum cleaners your money can buy. Alex Turner has taste.

This is the current version of the black Sebo Automatic X in the UK.
