Idles Vinyl, CD & tapes by Idles at Norman Records

Idles stylise their names as IDLES, a choice which makes sense if you’ve heard any of their music. This Bristolian five-piece make rage-filled rackets that pretty much demand to be shouted at, to or along with. The band’s instrumentalists manage ...read more »

IDLES
A Beautiful Thing: IDLES Live at Le Bataclan

Recorded at the end of a massive, celebratory world tour in December 2018 at Paris’ prestigious Le Bataclan, IDLES tore through a cathartic set of highlights from their career so far, including covers on top of tracks from their two beloved albums Brutalism and Joy As an Act of Resistance. That set is captured on new live album A Beautiful Thing - available on 2xCD or limited edition clear multi-coloured vinyl (orange, pink or lime green).

IDLES
Mercedes Marxist

Closing track, Rottweiler, was the first song IDLES wrote for their future classic album, Joy As An Act Of Resistance. The second song they wrote was Mercedes Marxist, but it was omitted from the final album. It was written by Joe Talbot at a time when he was unhappy with his life and this made him dislike the song. Time has made him realise it was good after all. It’s backed with another new song, I Dream Guillotine.

IDLES
Brutalism

Brutalism is the latest thirteen-track release from Idles. A powerfully written and politically driven collection of music that packs a punch aimed at the current political climate in the UK. It is hardcore and punk, so what do you expect? Described as ‘ a deadly serious indictment on popular culture’ that is available Vinyl LP and CD.

IDLES
Joy as an Act of Resistance

Imagine if Slaves were not the worst ever of things, and if there were more of them in the band, and if that band also wasn’t Shame. Thus have we IDLES. The Bristol band's second LP Joy As An Act Of Resistance can get a bit punk-by-numbers at times, but there are some properly good tunes in here. ‘Danny Nedelko’ will be a massive festival song for years to come, and I’m absolutely fine with that.

IDLES / Heavy Lungs
Danny Nedelko / Blood Brother

IDLES (do I have to write it in capitals?) are surfing a wave of success following their noisy dancing and recent album, Joy As An Act Of Resistance. Now, they are using their success to give a helping hand to fellow Bristol band, Heavy Lungs. Heavy Lungs are fronted by Danny Nedelko no less, a Ukrainian immigrant, friend of the band and subject of Idles much loved anthem which is featured here. Heavy Lungs contribute Blood Brother, a song about IDLES singer Joe Talbot. Split 7” on Partisan Records.
