The Last Shadow Puppets
How many times do you see a band that has earned fabulous fan base and appreciation just after its first album. Now dont look too far back as we have a recent example of instant fame and acclaim as two very talented musicians have become talk of the town after their very first effort.
We are talking about the dynamic duo of Alex and Miles who are currently rocking the music charts as The Last Shadow Puppets. Let us take a look at this band that has truly mesmerized everyone in a very short period of time.
While many of you may not know much about The Last Shadow Puppets, the names of Alex Turner and Miles Kane are not aliens for anyone who has been following music bands in recent times. The band The Last Shadow Puppets is a musical collaboration between these two extremely gifted musicians who have been giving us the taste of their musical aspirations for the past many years.
Alex Turner needs no introduction. Being the frontman of Sheffield band Arctic Monkeys, he enjoys the status of the singer, guitarist and songwriter of one of UK's biggest bands. Miles Kane, on the other hand, is the frontman of Wirral-based group from Liverpool The Rascals. He has previously worked with The Little Flames. The Last Shadow Puppets is their side project that was formed as the result of their long time association.
Sharing the same age and passion, the two members of The Last Shadow Puppets, Alex and Miles bounded well during their gigs together. Kane also played some guitar on Arctic Monkeys second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, that further strengthened the bond. Their official collaboration started when Kane's previous band toured with Alexs band in 2007.
The two started writing songs that spring, and headed into a French studio late in summer to create an album that will showcase their combined musical concepts. Hence they formed a band that would soon emerge as one of the most sought after acts of recent times.
It was in the spring of 2008 when The Last Shadow Puppets introduced themselves to the music world. Their debut album The Age of The Understatement was released by Domino Records. Appeared on the 21st of April in UK and 6th of May in the U.S, the album swept every one of their feet and this is just an Understatement.
The album saw the convergence of musical talents of Alex and Kane and also featured producer/drummer James Ford. String arrangements were made by arranger Owen Pallett and London Metropolitan Orchestra and the album contained twelve fully entertaining tracks that easily made their way to the hearts of the listeners.
Being the only major work of Last Shadow Puppets till date, The Age of The Understatement has got all the elements of a super hit collection. The album boosts of some of the original compositions by Alex and Miles besides some remakes of the popular acts of 60s.
While the duo mastered in its own tunes like Standing Next to Me and I Dont Like You Any More, their superb remake efforts of the Burt Bacharach-Hal David song My Little Red Book, the Beatles I Want You, David Bowies In the Heat of the Morning and Leonard Cohens Memories earned them ample praise from the fans and the critics alike.
All of these tracks went well with the listeners, but what really proved a blockbuster was title track and first single The Age of the Understatement. The single epitomizes the sound and style of this promising band.
With The Age of The Understatement, the Last Shadow Puppets have emerged as the winners all the way as this youthful record is nothing but a sheer pleasure of music. The album oversees a remarkably vivid 1960s symphonic-pop pastiche and shows the duos love for the 1960s warped orchestral and cinematic pop.
It is said that The Last Shadow Puppets is inspired by Scott Walker, Bowie and David Axelrod and many other 60s outfits. This inspiration has given them a chance to blend the modern music with the best work of legendary artists and thus create a sound that is multidimensional yet beautiful. The bands sound is full of life and drama, bold and brassy at times and witty and soulful at others.
With The Last Shadow Puppet, both Alex and Kane have competed with their own talents as they created work that is far better than their previous outings. While Alex Turner's songwriting is ultimately more profound, Miles Kane has put his best in the making of bands sound. What is even more remarkable is the blend of the voices of these two as it blends as naturally as if they are brothers.
The Last Shadow Puppets are as good on stage as they are in studio. The band played their first full United States concert at the Manhattan Centers Grand Ballroom and since then, performed at various sold out shows all over US and UK.
Some of their distinguished performances include applauded performances at the Reading and Leeds festivals and a BBC Electric Proms performance at Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall in 2008.
The band is planning some more tours in the near future, so you can be assured of the plenty of live ecstatic music and splendid singing. Watch out The Last Shadow Puppets live and you will know what we are talking about.
