Albums of Note... Bonobo, aka Simon Green, may not have found instant stardom in his career but his work is characterised by a steady progress that is reflected in his tracks. North Borders is the fifth studio album from Bonobo and he calls on a range of influences, from hip-hop, soul, jazz and dubstep, to create a sound that has gradually developed into his own distinctive sound. Bonobo calls on a few friends for this album, notably Erykah Badu, who sings on ‘Heaven for the Sinner,’ a twinkling take on modern soul.

“What sets Bonobo apart in an overly crowded marketplace… is an expert ability to channel myriad influences from outside of his sphere into something that works perfectly inside it, not just within a single track but start-to-finish across an album.”

Unusual Styles, Gallagher And Kane Trio Snapped At London's Groucho Club (Pictures)

Harry Styles Miles Kane Noel Gallagher Groucho Club

An unusual mixture of celebrities, Harry Styles, Noel Gallagher and Miles Kane are spotted among revellers at London's Groucho Club.

It seems to have been a busy night on Wednesday (April 3rd 2013) at London's popular party joint Groucho nightclub as Noel Gallagher and Miles Kane are joined by. Harry Styles?!

What do you get when you cross Harry Styles with Noel Gallagher and Miles Kane? Well, if you'd attended the Groucho Club last night you might've got some idea as the three of them were spotted enjoying a few drinks at the private members club. Though we're still not sure if they even spoke to each other, the thought of them together is a little bizarre and not only because of the One Direction hunk being thrown into the mix, but also for High Flying Birds star Noel, who must've had the shock of his life when he spotted Miles Kane pulling up who bears a remarkable resemblance to Noel's estranged brother Liam Gallagher. The dapper suit and tie might've given the game away though, even if the hair is spot on.

Miles Kane, Inhaler Single Review

By Andrew Lockwood in Music Reviews on 29 November 2010

Liverpudlian puppeteering former rascal Miles Kane ventures forth into the solo spotlight with his new single, 'Inhaler'. The single serves as an amuse-bouche to precede both his up coming tour, supporting the Courteeners, and his new hotly anticipated album. The debut solo is described by Kane as quite "Quite hard" and from the evidence of the first single, quite potent as well.

The Cave loving Coral appreciator Kane has taken the heavier elements from his former bands and unleashed a "guitar grinding" 60's infused piece of Indie Power Pop. Released as a single on 22nd of November, but available as a stream from his own website for some time, Inhaler has been gathering momentum through major league national airplay for the past few weeks. This short, sharp, shouty and anthemic slice from Kane hasn't made the midweek chart update but it has provided a tasty morsel from the upcoming solo album.
