The Last Shadow Puppets – Union Transfer
The Last Shadow Puppets are an English supergroup consisting of Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys), Miles Kane (The Rascals, solo artist), James Ford (Simian, Simian Mobile Disco, music producer), and Zach Dawes (Mini Mansions). They are joined live by Loren Humphrey (Guards, music producer, session musician) and Tyler Parkford (Mini Mansions). The band released their debut album The Age of the Understatement in 2008. Following a lengthy hiatus, they returned, releasing second album Everything You’ve Come to Expect in 2016.
If you have not seen these guys live – you should. A treat for the senses, most definitely.
They are all well accomplished musicians in their own rights – put them together and you have a true super group. With all the pomp and circumstance that goes with the “supergroup” moniker. The true beauty of the live experience is watching Alex and Miles bounce their personalities off each other. Both are front men, but they are more than happy to share the spotlight. Dancing together, singing together and just downright looking fab!
