Odes To Joy

Joy As An Act Of Resistance has brought the Bristol rebel rousers massive success. Laura Williams encounters our 2018 Album Of The Year winners


An overwhelming choice with our panel as Album Of he Year, Joy As An Act Of Resistance has been the record that took Idles to ‘the next level’, barging its way to the upper echelons of the UK album chart and helping the band sell out a series of riotous live dates, with a vast globe-straddling 2019 tour announced as we went to press. We managed to ind a small slot in the band’s increasingly hectic diary to speak to frontman Joe Talbot and guitarist Mark Bowen as they prepared to go on stage at a seething SWX in their home city of Bristol. It was to prove a celebratory homecoming for a band who succeeded in cathartically, joyously articulating the disillusion, fear and anger of a nation in 2018.
