They came, they saw, they conquered and now they’re coming back. Only a few weeks ago they blew the roof off the O2 Academy 3 and I guess they like Birmingham so much they’re bringing the whole shebang back to the Hare and Hounds in March. The perfect venue to harness their brutalist sound. IDLES are tearing up trees at the moment. In November Steve Lamacq recommended them on his show proclaiming them one of the discoveries of 2016 and lauding their ‘uncompromising pop’. Pop doesn’t quite seem a hard enough word for IDLES tough battering ram of clued up lyrics and chainsaw noise though. There are special guests to be announced so watch this space.
Tue 14 Mar 7.30pm at Hare and Hounds, High Street, Kings Heath B14 7JZ £7 hareandhoundskingsheath.
