Punk Rebels IDLES Dropped Brand New Riff Crazy Single ‘MR. MOTIVATOR’…

New sonic impulses…

20 May 2020

After their fantabulous second album Joy As An Act Of Resistance saw the daylight
in 2018, Bristol’s punch punks IDLES prepare for their third longplayer with brand new bang-up single ‘MR. MOTIVATOR’.

Frontman Joe Talbot said in a press statement: “We want to start this journey with a means
to not only encapsulate the album’s sentiment, but to encourage our audience to dance like no one is watching and plough through these dark times with a two ton machete of a song and the most beautiful community of scumbags ever assembled. Let’s go. All is love.”

Mr. Motivator is a riff crazy corker made to start crowded moshpits at gigs (for now, you
only can pirouette yourself bananas at home). A red-hot ripper that does your head it.

Bristol’s Pitbull Punks IDLES Drop New Pounding Punch ‘MERCEDES MARXIST’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

7 May 2019

After becoming massively famous with the release of last’ year’s second album Joy As An Act Of Resistance and touring the world right now Bristol‘s pit bull punks IDLES still found some time to drop a brand new smack called ‘MERCEDES MARXIST‘. Another characteristic power punch for all pogo fanatics out there. A hitting hammer, both maniacally muscular and madly melodic.

Singer Joe Talbot said in a press statement: “You can see the progression and regression in some ways. It’s us, but a year older. We got bored of certain things and excited by others. We want to write more techno, we want to write more noise, we want to write more pop, and we want to write more country. We’ll just write it until it sounds like something we love, then we’ll put the words on top.”

Why Outspoken Blitzkrieg Punk Gang IDLES Is The Best Fucking Band Right Now On Our Troubled Planet…

IDLES – De Zwerver, Leffinge, Belgium – 2 November 2018

Soon, at the end of the year, Bristol‘s steamrollin’ punks IDLES will be in countless 2018
lists in two categories: best album and best live act. Second longplayer JOY AS AN ACT
OF RESISTANCE
catapulted the band into the highest regions of alternative music. It’s an awesome red-hot-blooded record capable of bringing your speakers down, but also, and actually most of all, this socially committed combo looks, acts and plays like HUMANS – very exciting ones, that is – they write about ALL HUMANS and they do it for us, HUMANS. Read the gripping interview NME had a couple of months ago with blazing frontman Joe Talbot right here and you’ll learn that this dynamite squad has a very BIG HONEST HEART!

And then there are their smashing live shows. On a podium, this down-to-earth quintet becomes a blitzkrieg machine blowing your minds unstoppably with emotional force and relentless panache. Yesterday was my fourth live encounter. Another oh-yeah-fucking-hell experience. Explosive every-nerve-in-his-body-is-alive-and-kicking frontman Joe Talbot leads the hair-raising troops but all of his remarkable teammates assist him brilliantly to make the crowd go totally gaga. Everybody’s screaming, yelling, jumping, cheering, clapping and sweating with the greater part of the crazed crowd involved in the boiling mosh-pit in the middle of the fired-up venue and at one point many of us, including myself, hit the stage
to hop around madly like a bunch of wild kids. Yes, folks, this is what ENTERTAINMENT is all about. Having the time of your life on a night out and returning home, voiceless, with a large smile on your face. Great bands make people feel BLOODY HAPPY! This hot clan is not only great, right now, right here IDLES id the best fucking band on this troubled planet…

If you never heard of them , check this cooking BBC TV performance and
you’ll realize why I’m in a euphoric state during and after an Idles gig…

Some shots from yesterday’s steamy party


L-o-u-d and intens joy as an act of resistance


Blitzkrieg electricity


By the people for the people


Creating a deafening Black Sabbath like finale…


See you next time
