The Last Shadow Puppets

I wasn't a big fan of the Arctic Monkeys when they came out...and I'm still not.  However, I do really dig Alex Turner's side band The Last Shadow Puppets.  I saw a video for them a while back and thought they were pretty good.  I efforted to find out more about them but to no avail.  
Then I saw the video for "Standing Next To Me" off of their debut album Age of the Understatement.  As soon as I heard that song I was hooked again.  Their sound is like an upbeat version of The Clientele.  Still a mod-ish, chamber pop sound, but more upbeat.  I really, really like "Standing Next To Me" and I think you will too.
