This year’s event was headlined by Miles Kane who’s staying busy both in the studio and up on the stage after the release of his Coup De Grace album last year. “Marc Bolan is the main touch-point, specifically on Cry On My Guitar,” our album review reads. “It’s a cracking single, bringing the sexiness of the guitar that made T-Rex such a phenomenon. The disco-inflected title-track, however, has a guitar riff that could make Nile Rodgers ask for a birth certificate.”

“First single Loaded has a US west coast strut, while Jamie T’s influence is most keenly felt on Too Little Too Late, it being a frantic opener that bursts proceedings into life and which would have sat well on either of the Londoner’s own first two albums.”

“Kane has got a strong set of lungs too; on Wrong Side Of Life he begins as Thom Yorke but ends as Richard Ashcroft.”
