Gig Photography and Review by Jason Broadhurst


3 piece band,The Family Rain are slowly moving up the ranks amassing a small following. Working their trade supporting the likes of The Courteeners and Willy Moon, they are assured and composed moving through their bluesy rock songs.


It has been just over three years since I came across Miles Kane supporting the mighty Kasabian. That night very few of the crowd really knew who he was myself included, but tonight the story is very different. As the sound of ‘Morning Glory’ blasts through the speakers the crowd erupt in typical Mancunian fashion before he even makes it onto stage.


Tweeting before the gig Miles said “45 mins till this place explodes” and he wasn’t wrong. Arriving onstage to a raft of cheers, the Liverpudlian swaggers about onstage working his way through songs from albums ‘Don’t Forget Who You Are’ and ‘Colour Of The Trap’. Miles has clearly been learning the tricks of the trade from fellow Last Shadow Puppets artist Alex Turner. Riding high on the release of his new album and performances like this Miles Kane could soon be heading for even greater things.
