One of the most eagerly anticipated albums of 2011 was always going to be the debut solo album from Miles Kane. An old hand already in the industry from former guitarist in The Little Flames, front man in The Rascals to even one half of the critically acclaimed super group The Last Shadow Puppets with Arctic Monkeys vocalist and singer Alex Turner and all before his 25th birthday (this March.)

Already there has been two singles released from the upcoming album and both were on show here tonight bookending the set, with the opener 'Come Closer' showing a live band that hits the ground running and is primed and ready to go. The crowd was crammed in and rocking before the chorus of song one. It had been a long day after all here at the XFM all dayer and after many of the typical indie bands with the occasional synth sprinkling wasn't really impressing too many people. Here at the finale with Miles Kane we are treated to someone on top of their game and fired track after track from the as of yet unreleased album with only a minimal of between track "hi how are you" chat. Security were on hand at both sides of the stage as loads of fans were climbing over the barriers to grab the front man before leaping back into the crowd, stage divers were politely toldâ that this wasn't Wembley Stadium but a venue that holds the same as a Wedding reception and to knock off the leaping "somebody catch me!" routines. Other tracks that stood out were the poptastic 'Quicksand' and the highly anticipated 'My Fantasy' which appears on the album with Noel Gallagher applying backing vocals, 'Re-Arrange' as well as the excellent riff heavy 'Inhaler' which got the biggest cheer of the night.

The track that come out of left field and one that continued the trend by Kane of throwing a unexpected cover into the live mix was the faithful version of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's club banger 'Spread Your Love' which gave the floorboards of The Barfly a good ol' fashioned hammering under a giant mosh pit. Expect greater things from Miles Kane, the album is going to be a wake up to the knob twiddling wimpy gap year bands flooding out of East London on a weekly basis and I hope it influences a generation of people to put down their computer run sonic ideals and crank their amps and guitars up to ten again.
