From NME.com "Turners new band"

Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner and The Rascals' Miles Kane are set to record an album together later this month.

The pair became friends when Kane's first band The Little Flames supported Arctic Monkeys on their early tour.

Kane contributed guitar to Arctic Monkeys' second album 'Favourite Worst Nightmare' and has joined the Sheffield band live frequently this summer to play '505' with them, including at the weekend's Old Trafford gigs (July 28-29).

Now the pair are set to head to France to record an album together in mid-August.

"We're there for two weeks and we're going to try to get the majority of it done," Kane told NME.COM. "James Ford is producing it and is going to play drums, he's a really boss drummer. Me and Al will do all the bass and guitar and vocals, and try to the get the bulk of it done in two weeks. We're going to record it quite live to tape I think. Then whenever we've got weekends off at the same time we'd like to get some strings on it and probably do all that back home. That's the plan anyway."

The singer added that the pair were still trying to work out what their project will be called.

"We were thinking Turner & Kane but everyone says it doesn't sound too serious," he explained.

Kane is currently recording The Rascals debut EP in London - due out in October - with Blur and Elbow producer Ben Hiller.

He expects the pair's album to come out in the first half of 2008, after The Rascals have released their debut album.

"We want to have a bit of everything on there," said Kane of his own band's forthcoming album. "Some of the tunes do the same job, if you know what I mean, so we'll only have a couple of them on. So when we do it we will have everything."

I must be very conservatief to say this: But don't like it!!!! How can I listen to Alex voice, when there is no Jamie, Nick or Matt in the background :( that just wouldn't feel right...

Well, maybe it turns out to be okay :) Just hope the Monkeys don't split and find the time to record a new album :)

I agree.

I'm not too keen on this miles chap to be honest.

not that i think he's a bad musician or a bad person, not in that respect at all. I just think that the arctic monkeys should stay the arctic monkeys. Four lads from sheffield. i felt similar when andy first left but that was his choice, whereas the whole dynamic of the band changes when miles is on stage.

i don't know if it's an air of arrogance or what, but it's just like... well, we haven't come to see you, get of the stage. that's the feeling. especially now it's more than just a one off with 505 and he's actually a key part of the fluorescent adolescent B-sides.
