It must be hard to be forced – due to that awful sick virus – to sit at home when you’re
an artist/band that just loves to set stages on fire. Bristol punks IDLES are one of those countless acts who are addicted to turning up the heat on a podium, as I experienced myself a couple of times. They feel paralyzed when they can’t go bonkers in front of a delirious crowd. So they look for alternative ways to unleash the beast inside them.
Early September they invaded the legendary Abbey Road studios to ventilate their lockdown energy and a couple of weeks ago they recorded a live set, performed in
their hometown, for Seattle’s famous music Radio Station KEXP. They played four jackhammers from the new album Ultra Mono with an introduction by insane
guitarist Mark Bowen. Pretty hot-sizzling moments, folks! Holy smoke!
