Idlewild 2019


#21

I could. In fact, I think I did before.



#22

I mean, there’s some good stuff in there. For me it’s just such a tail off compared to how good the first 3 (and Captain) are.

I know, I know, “I preferred the early stuff” - peak DiS.


#23

Well early and old Idlewild are basically totally different bands really. I think you can say there are three eras of the band - beginning to The Remote Part, Remote Part to Post Electric Blues, and the post-Hiatus stuff.


#24

Fair. I’d classify them as follows:

Exciting / Extra Medium / Auld Da


#25

More tour dates (Eng & Sco so far):

That new song is boring is hell.

IMO Idlewild haven’t produced anything interesting since The Remote Part. They’re now just another bland and inoffensive band.


#27

No ‘Collect Yourself’?
wow!


#28

W/P and MAW are a step down but I still enjoyed them at the time. rarely listen to those now but remember thinking some tracks definitely held up well last time i did (they’re also still quite tied up with a nostalgic reaction for me so it’s hard to judge them objectively)

PEB and EEW were a step down too far into Radio 2 territory for me.


#29

Two things

They’ve ballsed up this 1pm announcement eh?

And the later half of that track sounds a lot like The Deluder by Roddy, which I loved.


#30

Definitely x2.


#31

it’s probably just that their digital distributor has fucked them and released it on to spotify at midnight last night


#32

Are these not (Idle)wildly ambitious room sizes?


#33

just listened to the 30 second clip on instagram. who the fuck’s singing? are we sure this is the same band?


#34

What the hell is going on with that vinyl?


#35

:man_shrugging:
The thing that caught my eye was that the tour schedule is a bit mental.
Southampton to Leeds and then back down to London for example. Tour manager is off his loaf.


#36

Splatter effect m9.
The indie shop variant is red I believe.


#37

It looks like someone spilled a load of that mint sauce that ice cream vans have all over their pristine white vinyl :slight_smile:


#38

I now want an ice cream :laughing:


#39

London > Birmingham > Manchester… doing okay…

Norwich!


#40

That’s twice in two days Norwich gigs have been mentioned on Dis.
Meat Puppets and now this.
North Norfolk Digital must have a more indie audience than I’d given them credit for.
