Great PAR­TI­SAN RECORDS Bris­tol-based bunch Idles have been a name of the lips of many this year. Their caus­tic brand of punk is as mean as Wolverine with a ten-day old hang­over, as po­lit­i­cally charged as Crass in their prime, and ut­terly es­sen­tial lis­ten­ing in an era of un­rest. New sin­gle ‘Great’ is one of their best; a bass-driven an­them for out­siders that rages against the ma­chine. Joe Talbot’s grav­elly vo­cals add even more grit to pro­ceed­ings – and that cho­rus is an ab­so­lute mon­ster.
