Idles are a UK band tipped for big things and being touted as one of the best bands coming out of Bristol. They are a popular local festival band headlining at Dot to Dot and Simple Things. They are coming to the Villa on 23 November. Videos and gig information here - http://www.villagaie...38;menuid=11570 This is how they describe themselves - Idles sound has always been a hard one to categorise, but imagine something between the intense rock and roll of The Walkmen and the dark post-punk of Joy Division and you'll be somewhere close. However, anyone who has witnessed the bands live show will confirm that they are very much about doing their own thing. Joe's vocals have the yearnings of soul and the rage of punk, all riding on the blissfully driven bass lines of Dev - This is more than complimented by the spiky dual guitars of Andy S and Mark Bowen and the logic-defying drumming of Jon Beavis - carving out a fully-charged live show that is as thrilling as it is unforgettable. More info about Idles - www.idlesband.co.uk Support for Idles on 23 November at the Villa will be Cartesian Jetstream (who recently featured on Tom Robinson's BBC Radio 6 show) and Ballagroove DJs.
