A while with 'wild

Good lord - there we were, poised on the cusp of suggesting it might be a little early for a Idlewild career-spanning restrospective, but then we noticed it's called Scottish Friction: 1997-2007.

Yes, ten years.

While you're feeling old, you might want to consider the planned tour, too:

October
9 Liverpool Academy
10 Preston 53 Degrees
11 Leicester The Venue
13 Sheffield The Leadmill
23 Portsmouth Pyramid
24 Falmouth Princess Pavillion
25 Exeter Phoenix
27 Nottingham Rescue Rooms
28 Warwick University
29 Cambridge The Junction
30 London Koko

November
1 Dublin The Village
2 Belfast Mandela Hall

"Scottish Friction"?
Is it not "Scottish Fiction"?

Real shame, should have been a great great band. Got talked into trying to be post-Automatic For The People REM. Clearly by someone who was deaf.

P.S. When I argue I see shapes is still ace.

Idlewild (and Ash) c.1999 were amazing.

I saw Idlewild in 2000 (London Astoria I think) and they were supported by Coldplay who may have had an influence on their later direction.
