or maybe I’m just pretentious.

Addressing politics in pop is supposed to be a tricky balancing act, yet Idles frontman Joe Talbot charges across the tightrope in heavy boots, screaming in the face of the farce unfolding around him. There is untrammelled aggression in his voice, a directness that leaves spittle on your cheeks, but it is humour, not anger, that he uses as his most devastating weapon. On Never Fight a Man With a Perm, he mocks a coked-up, white-shirted Neanderthal: You look like a walking thyroid, You’re not a man, you’re a gland, You’re one big neck with sausage hands. Beneath the rage and the humour, though, lie real human emotions: vulnerability, comradeship, warmth. Joy As An Act of Resistance is an album of personal, as well as political, anguish. Just as the band’s debut, Brutalism, was inspired by the death of Talbot’s mother – he had been her carer, and became increasingly enraged at NHS cuts in the age of austerity – this follow-up sees Talbot delving into his relationship with his father (Colossus), his complex struggle with masculinity (Samaritans) and, on the funereally paced June, his memories of.

Well, it’s a fun film, and they’re fun punks; there’s a notable dissonance between Idles’ music and collective persona. And yet Idles are a colourful bunch whose debut, 2016’s ‘Brutalism’, peppered their righteous punk with bizarre jokes ( Mary Berry loves reggae, So why don’t you love reggae? )

Joy as an Act of Resistance. is the follow up to Bristol, UK 5-piece IDLES’s debut album Brutalism, self-released last year. Produced by Space and mixed by Adam Greenspan & Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Kate Bush, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Joy as an Act of Resistance. takes aim at everything from toxic masculinity, nationalism, immigration, and class inequality – all while maintaining a visceral, infectious positivity. Singer Joe summarises: This album is an attempt to be vulnerable to our audience and to encourage vulnerability; a brave naked smile in this shitty new world

The closing track from IDLES' second album Joy as an Act of Resistance, Rottweiler had been performed live as early as 2016. What have the artists said about the song? This is the oldest song on the album and the perfect closer for an album of self-realization. It’s a war cry where I wash my hands of the torrid hateful tabloid press and put my reading glasses on. - Joe Talbot in a track by track interview with NPR. "Rottweiler" Track Info. Written By Mark Bowen, Lee Kiernan, Jonathan Beavis & 2 more. Release Date August 31, 2018. Joy as an Act of Resistance.

Rough Trade exclusive version with a bonus live CDr packaged in a card sleeve.

Reviews about Idles - Joy As An Act Of Resistance (7):
Mr tattoo man yells lots about things like man trouble and politic stuff. He also doesn’t like perms which sucks because people with perms are cool af
Saw Idles live in vancouver a few weeks ago. I don’t know if the album can compete with that. Amazing band amazing album
Great album, but another lousy pressing by GZ. I've gone through two of these and both were warped and covered in pops and clicks and cratered vinyl, and for $47 retail... What a joke. GZ and Rainbo are constantly competing for the title of worst QC.
I've already gone through 2, both have the same imperfections on the surface that cause the pops, some in the same spots too. I think I'm just gunna give up on this one, it's way too pricy for the quality of the press. Glad yours sounds good though. I have the VMP edition coming which hopefully will be better. Hopefully it's different plates.
This shares the same matrix numbers as the pink vinyl (which sounds very good) so the black should be good too (if not better)May be worth trying another?
When I first heard Danny Neldelko being played on the radio,thought straight away post punk (1978/79).I then thought if it was from this period I would of been aware of it outstanding track from great album,this is just what the music scene now needs.
Every once in a while something special happens on the UK's music scene. This album encapsulates one of those moments. Every track is a true gem.
