Miles Kane @ L'Album de la Semaine Canal+, Paris March 29 2011

Miles Kane @ L'Album de la Semaine, Canal+
Paris March 29 2011
Former guitar player and singer for The Rascals & The Last Shadow Puppets is going solo.
Why sharing all the money in a band when you can keep everything for yourself and have session guys ?
After playing a sold-out show @ Point Ephémere (setlist: Better left Invisible / Rearrange / My Fantasy / King Crawler / Telepathy / Quicksand / Happenstance / Hey Bulldog [The Beatles] / Come Closer / Inhaler) last week on March 23 ,we didn't go we were @ Marianne Faithfull. Miles is back in Paris for this tv show.

He's starting the gig with a very punchy song from the new album "Colour of the trap " that will be out in May 09 2011.
No looking back as he's playing only new songs. It's very close but less rock than The Rascals in which he was the main composer.
Between rock and pop, the musicianship is high, everysong is perfectly executed but i've already noticed that the first time I saw Miles with The Rascals @ Fleche d'Or in 2008 (click for Pics & review).
Between songs he always has a few words for the audience or a "thumbs up" That's him he's always cool and smiling, sure he's a nice guy.
All well dressed with nice shoes and jackets, very 60's English especially Miles all in black with white shirt, is he coming back from a funeral ?
Funny they look like the Beatles '65.
I was a bit disapointed after hearing a few songs from the new album but Live they really rock.The single is much more better live than on cd
Great gig
