Biography

There are several artists named Idlewild;

1) Idlewild is a rock band which formed in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1995. The band currently comprises of Roddy Woomble (lead vocals), Rod Jones (guitar, backing vocals), Colin Newton (drums), Allan Stewart (guitar) and Gareth Russell (bass).

The band has released “Hope Is Important” (1998), “100 Broken Windows” (2000), “The Remote Part” (2002), “Warnings/Promises” (2005), “Make Another World” (2007) and “Post Electric Blues” (2009). In April 2010, Roddy Woomble announced that the band would enter a ‘hiatus’ following their tour. However this was proved to be a misunderstanding of sorts with Woomble later going on to suggest that there would be further shows before the end of 2010 in support of the EMI re-release of “100 Broken Windows”.

November 2014 saw the return of the band with two acoustic shows in London plus the release of Collect Yourself, available to download with pre-orders of ‘Everything Ever Written’ (2015)

David and Carol Sharp formed Idlewild nearly twenty years ago.

3) A band called Idlewilde that has been playing in Connecticut since 1981. Idlewilde performs a mixture of classic blues, southern rock and original material.

    Тем, для кого Idlewild - новое, неизведанное имя, посоветовал бы начать знакомство с командой с альбома "The Remote Part". Остальное - на любителя.

    Хорошие продолжатели дела REM. Лучше многих своих соотечественников.

    Everything Ever Written growing on me. Several songs now in the current playlist. Make Another World still my favorite but this one is getting close. Awesome to have them back.

    If only they'd followed 100 Broken Windows with a better album, they would have been massive. Oh well at least the first 2 albums are corkers and Captain is a cracker too.

    The raw stuff was the best thing about Idlewild, Hope is Important & 100 Broken Windows were cracking albums. [2] I agree with this. I remember when I started listening to Idlewild and people turned their noses up only for the same people to become fans a few albums later. Met the lads in Edinburgh in the early days in the place both our bands practised and got a bit starstruck lol!
