The Idles boys were back in town, so we (Max & Simon) though it best to have a quick catch up with them, our last meeting was the December of 2016 ahead of their Night and Day Cafe show. Almost 18 months later we’re back stage at Gorilla before they entertain Manchester on a much bigger scale.

As always there’s some highly entertaining bickering between Joe and Bowen, there’s some silly, there’s some serious.

Press play and find out what bands Cabbage and Life do better than Idles, get an update on the next album, what Idles think success is, what Bowen thought of first album Brutalism when he listened to it again recently, and we get an update on Joe’s dad’s eye operation.

(apologies for the sound in some parts, it was well noisy back stage due to ongoing sound checks)
