Miles Peter Kane was born in Birkenhead, Wirral and was raised in nearby Meols. He played the saxophone as a child. His cousins, James and Ian Skelly, two founding members of The Coral, had a great influence on his music taste while he was growing up.
At age 18, Kane joined The Little Flames as guitarist in December 2004. The band signed to Deltasonic and were compared to label mates the Coral and high-profile bands such as the Arctic Monkeys. They also went on to tour with bands like the Coral, the Zutons, the Dead 60s and the Arctic Monkeys. The band split in 2007 prior to releasing their debut album, which was eventually released in 2016.
Kane, on vocals and lead guitar, was joined by Greg Mighall on drums and Joe Edwards on bass guitar and occasional backing vocals. Kane took on the main songwriting duties for the band. The band, who have known each other from childhood, continued where the Little Flames left off; they signed with Deltasonic Records again, only with fewer members this time.
The Rascals released their debut EP in December 2007, just seven months after they got together. Entitled Out of Dreams it featured 4 tracks but did not achieve chart success. Despite this, they were noted as a band to watch, championed in particular by NME, following a well-received support slot on the Arctic Monkeys' 2007 tour. Their first album 'Rascalize' was released on 23 June 2008. The Rascals have a small role in the film Awaydays playing an Echo & the Bunnymen cover.
