Well-turned out, former Scottish scruffian poetic grunge-punks, iDLEWiLD are set to perform all their albums.
With a teenage wriggle of excitement not felt since hearing that Ash were to play 1977 in an ATP-Don't-Look-Back-style; DiS is pleased to share the news that Idlewild have announced a five-night-stand at the legendary King Tut's in Glasgow, where they will play their back catalogue in its entirety.

Would you be listening to the music you listen to today if it wasn't for Roddy name checking little known American acts? Ditto authors and philosophers? How many times have you seen them? Think I've seen them thirty times, should I be embarrassed about this?
