Video: See Alex Turner Record Himself and The Last Shadow Puppets Performing with a Fan’s Phone

posted by Oscar April 4, 2016

Some fans can get lucky if their post tagging an artist gets a “like,” and it’s almost a badge of honor if it gets shared/reposted… But none of that compares to what one fan can boast about after attending The Last Shadow Puppets’ concert in Liverpool…

Ashley Hazlehurst did what any millennial fan would do these days, which is whip out her phone and record a bit of the show. It only makes sense to do that considered you’re in front rows, but much to her surprise, singer Alex Turner reached out and took her phone to capture a bit of the set from his own POV. Turner zeroed in the backing players as well as partner Miles Kane before turning the phone’s lens to focus on himself.

Check out the dope moment above.

Video: The Last Shadow Puppets – “Bad Habits”

posted by Oscar January 10, 2016

The wait for the return of The Last Shadow Puppets, Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane, is finally over. The band had teased their return and tonight they make it official with the release of new song “Bad Habits” and its accompanying video.

The song has this slinky, groovy bassline that’s paired with a brash strings arrangement and together they slither into your brain to take you on one wild ride. The video was directed by Ben Chappell; see it above.

“Bad Habits” is surely just our first taste of what’s to come from this pair, as they will be performing at Coachella this Spring.

Josh Homme Alex Turner

Josh Homme, frontman of Queens Of The Stone Age, has a Beats 1 Radio show on Apple and on the latest episode of the so-called “The Alligator Hour with Josh Homme,” Homme’s special guest was none other than Alex Turner. The Arctic Monkeys lead singer was introduced to the show at about the 30:18 mark as an “origami teacher, hand model, and international Monopoly champion.”

Fast forward to the 39:00 mark, after playing some tunes the pair begin talking about names for bars (The Dumb Fox, Pre-Hab, Alternative Endings), before hitting on the subject of crafting songs and we hear about how Turner doesn’t typically write lyrics when he’s recording a song.

Listen to the whole episode on Apple Music.

Video: Arctic Monkeys – “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” (Acoustic)

posted by Oscar October 22, 2013

Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner and Matt Helders hit up Avatar Studios in New York and played a live, acoustic version of their track “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” The stripped down version actually sounds pretty good still with just a guitar and a xylophone(?).

See that clip above.
