Just getting into this band, picked up both albums and really liking them.  Jools Holland performance I saw late last year sold me on ‘em. They're playing a round of dates in the US in May, looks like the 5/22 show at The Fonda in LA will be my first show of 2019. Hopefully it won’t clash with rumored KJ date in LA around the same time.

I remember fleetingly discussing them with Rob Moss and some others back in November when I was over there, but what's everyone's take on the Bristol band, IDLES, whose latest album JOY AS AN ACT OF RESISTANCE even caught the attention of the Brit Awards (although they did not win -- probably for the best).
I realize there's a bit of backlash about their "authenticity" as working class (spearheaded by the Sleaford Mods and the Fat White Family), but as far as I'm concerned, they make great, bracing music and look like they put on a damn entertaining live show. But, again, results may vary.
What say you all?
