Liverpool-based musician Miles Kane first came to public attention with his first band, the Little Flames, who included the Arctic Monkeys amongst their fans.
The Little Flames lasted barely two years and broke up in 2007 immediately after recording an unreleased album, 'The Day is Not Today'.
While Kane had played the guitar and the vocalist had been Eva Petersen (the subject of a recent Pennyblackmusic interview) in the Little Flames, he became the front man in his next band, the Rascals, a trio which also featured Little Flames' bassist Joe Edwards and drummer Greg Mighall.
The Rascals lasted again two years and released one album, the 60's pop and psychedelic-influenced 'Rascalize'.
While he was in the Rascals, Kane also formed a side project, the Last Shadow Puppets, with his friend, the Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner. The Last Shadown Puppets released an album, the orchestral 'The Age of the Understatement', in 2008,
Miles Kane turned solo in 2009 and put out his debut solo album, 'Colour of the Trap', which again has 60's influences, last year.
Miles Kane recently completed an eight date tour of the UK. These photographs which find him in typically energetic form were taken at one of the gigs on that tour at the Manchester Academy on the 26th April.
