Bristol Gang IDLES Live From The Legendary ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS In London

1 September 2020

When you’re a band that comes truly alive when being on stage in front of
your out-of-their-head fans it’s hard to be shut up by that evil coronavirus.

But IDLES found a way to ventilate their lockdown energy by hiring the legendary
Abbey Road Studios in London and have themselves a live session party. They
entertained each other with some covers (‘Helter Skelter’ by The Beatles, ‘Reptilia’ by
The Strokes, ‘I Wanna Be Sedated’ by Ramones) and some ripsnorters of their own.

Like these two haymakers. MERCEDES MARXIST, a stunning track destined to be
on their second, breakthrough album Joy As An Act Of Resistance, but wasn’t after
all and SAMARITANS which was one of the highlights of that sophomore LP.

So, while waiting for their third longplayer ULTRA MONO (out 25 September)
let’s join the Bristol motherrockers in London…
