The Last Shadow Puppets
BiographyThe Last Shadow Puppets is a side project from Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane (the Little Flames and the Rascals) that came about when they found themselves obsessively listening to the spaghetti western-fueled dramatic pop of Scott Walker and his band the Walker Brothers. In 2008, the two wrote a terrific batch of melodramatic, retro-flavored pop songs and worked with arranger Owen Pallett (Arcade Fire, Beirut, the Hidden Cameras) to come up with their debut album, The Age of Understatement. The album earned strong reviews in Britain, and the band showed that they could rock a string section with an energetic live show.
