Whilst Brit-pop was still in full-swing, Idlewild were dropping out of art school and ingesting early REM, Fugazi, Meat Puppets, Superchunk, and all those small bands on American indie-rock labels. Whilst considered a safe bet for Blur’s label “Food”, their angular indie rock was more in-keeping with the label’s earlier output of the likes of Crazyhead, Woodentops and Diesel Park West, than Blur’s increasingly faux-cockney “sing-along” style that was to define the Brit Pop sound. Food were engulfed by Parlophone/EMI around the same time as Idlewild’s debut mini LP “Captain” was released, and whilst Blur took on the world, their Scottish labelmates quietly got on with the business of producing astounding indie rock. Angular and edgy, but always full of melody, Idlewild were the critics favourite (Steve Lamacq at Radio 1 leading the pack!)
Post Electric Blues loses none of the power chord prowess of their earlier albums (thanks to legendary rock producer Dave Eringa), but sets new crossover standards. With guest vocals from Heidi Talbot, the multi-part harmonies pay homage to trailblazers such as Fairport Convention without sycophancy, whilst McCusker on violin provides that perfect extra element to “Take Me Back To The Islands”.
