The duo – which sees Arctic Monkeys‘ Alex Turner teaming up with Miles Kane – played Canada’s WayHome Music & Arts Festival at the weekend. The Ontario event was headlined by Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem and The Killers.
Appearing at the festival on Saturday (July 23), Turner and Kane decided to perform a song about Win Butler and co ahead of the Canadian band’s headline set later in the evening.
“Are you ready for Arcade Fire?” Kane croons in the song, with Turner adding: “I’m talking about Arcade Fire”. Watch below.
The Last Shadow Puppets similarly improvised a song about Tame Impala at Poland’s Open’er festival last month.

Meanwhile, The Last Shadow Puppets were joined by Johnny Marr to cover The Smiths at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl earlier this month.
Marr’s former bandmate, The Smiths’ drummer Mike Joyce was also at the gig and wrote on Facebook: “So I’m at The Last Shadow Puppets gig tonight and Johnny Marr walks on and they play, ‘Last Night I Dreamt…’
“The guy next to me says, “Seen the guy on the right with black hair? That’s Johnny Marr, the guitarist from The Smiths and this is a Smiths song they’re playing”. I didn’t say owt, I just couldn’t.”
