Alex Turner: ‘Last Shadow Puppets do their own stunts!’

Turner and Kane speak at Shockwaves NME Awards

The Last Shadow PuppetsAlex Turner has said that making the Shockwaves NME Award-winning video for ‘My Mistakes Were Made For You’ was “painful”, as the duo performed their own stunts.

Turner along with bandmate Miles Kane, were speaking in an exclusive video at the awards, which you can watch by clicking below.

“We did it all [stunts],” Turner said. “Quite painful actually. Doesn’t look it… the harness really digging in on your side, suspended for sometimes three or four minutes at a time.”
