Reviews

    Details

    With support from Michael Anguish

    Formed in 1995 and famously described in their early days by the NME as sounding like ‘a flight of stairs falling down a flight of stairs’, Idlewild’s marriage of punk rock, poetry and Highland spirit saw them grow from a raucous cult curiosity into chart-bothering national treasures. Growing more mature and masterful with melody they dropped six acclaimed albums and two compilations before deciding to take a break in 2010.

    Living life and continuing solo ventures filled their time away and a few years passed before friendship and the bind of their creative relationship brought them back together for 2015’s ‘Everything Ever Written’. Wondering if there was still a hunger for Idlewild, the band’s own compulsion and flair translated into one of the most ambitious records of their career. With it came critical praise, an album in the top 20 and successful tours of the UK, Japan and America with the band selling out venues as large as they ever had.

    “Idlewild has always been a band without a plan, in the best possible sense,” says frontman Roddy Woomble. “We didn’t start this feeling like it was a viable career choice or anything like that. It was all about communicating ideas and trying to write some cool songs. I look back on our beginnings as quite an innocent time but with ‘Everything Ever Written’ the desire was there just to carry on doing it.”
