Both personal and universal, punk rock and punk music in general has a way of causing mass hysteria and worldwide followings throughout the industry. Known for his chaotic truths and political attacks …

punk music is a genre that anyone can get behind with (or without) their own beliefs.

This does not ring more true than with the darkly crowned breakthrough act of IDLES. Amongst a world of political correctness and safe correction, this passionate eclectic of the dirty and robust, are basically here to trample all over that.

Both debut, Brutalism in 2017 and Joy As An Act Of Resistance in 2018 saw the band rise to chart stardom and infamy among the punk’s world best. Talbot’s unique depravity in his voice drives this band to creating just fantastic music. Their third art piece of Ultra Mono is another quip of rock revelry that is a joy to listen to. I’m sure I turn into a little jumped up kid whenever I listened to these Bristol lads.

I recommend giving them a playthrough – start with Never Fight A Man With A Perm. I don’t think any other song will perfectly reflect the sounds and styles of IDLES. Enjoy, my friends.

You look like a walking thyroid
You’re not a man, you’re a gland
You’re one big neck with sausage hands
You are a Topshop tyrant
Even your haircut’s violent
You look like you’re from Love Island
He stood and the room went silent

    Great advice! Oh I mean that song title, Never Fight a Man with a Perm. Music is solid, reminds me of early 80s punk.

      Ah that’s fantastic. Criminally underrated band in my humble opinion.
