The Age of the Understatement by The Last Shadow Puppets
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Last Shadow Puppets are Alex Turner (from Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane (from The Rascals). Firm friends ever since Arctic Monkeys toured with Kane’s previous group, The Little Flames, the pair were so inspired by listening to the likes of Scott Walker, early Bowie and David Axelrod, that they hatched a plan.

The result is an album of 12 full-blooded songs, bold and brassy, full of drama, wit and melody, that source the past but avoid falling into pastiche. Both Alex Turner and Miles Kane are 22, and this is a youthful record, full of life and the sheer pleasure of music making: ‘it’s not a chore, it’s enjoyment,’ Kane says, ‘it’s great finding that with someone else, a dead good friend’. ‘Usually you collaborate when you’re older, but we thought, let’s do it while we’re young. It’ll have a different
 dge. It’s a dead natural thing: that’s always the best way’.
