“Cramming people into high-rises
While selling their welfare for low prices
Public spending gets big slices
While ignoring the true prices
Where were you when the ship sank?
Probably not queuing for food banks
Probably waving your Union Jack
Probably rallying for new tanks
Probably to blow up the ice caps“

lol, what do those last two lines even mean?
This is, ostensibly, a punk band. Do they never listen to the Dead Kennedy’s in the van and think “fuck, might have to put a bit more work into that verse about Gammons”?

Anyway this record is number 1.

They’re holding people in detention island
and then moving them to Ascension Island
The cruelty is beyond comprehension island
The government are just so full of condescension island.
I repeat the government are just so full of condescension island
Oh no I’ve got some hypertension island... arghhhh.

If you've ever done blackface
You're part of the paedo race
If you've ever called Ravi, 'Anesh'
You're part of the paedo race

If you're racist then lick my bum!
When racists cry, I start to cum
If you're racist then lick my bum!
Your scatological punishment

Read The Daily Mail, page by page?
You're part of the paedo race
Never asked out an ethnic race?
You're a kiddie fiddling disgrace

If you're racist then lick my bum!
When racists cry, I start to cum
If you're racist then lick my bum!
Your scatological punishment

Maybe they think WeTransfer is cool because it can be utilised for sharing pirated content or they misread it and thought it was some sort of trans rights thing and were instantly just like “YES we support that get it on the fuckin video that’ll show the haters”.

A lot of the IDLES criticism in the press I've seen so far seems to skirt the heart of the issue, that the music they make is absolute anus.

Although I must admit, I do get a small amount of enjoyment out of singing "modul hate / modul woife / modul VILLidge" in his stupid voice while wandering around the house from time to time.

They really don't like villages do they.

I'm sure we could all find that exact phrasing in rock songs down the years but it reminded me of a local band of my youth

I had it stuck in my head a lot when I started this thread as well. I listened to it a couple of times and also played it to my partner (who thankfully agreed with me that it was awful shite) and it really did a number on me. Talbot does seem to have a knack for wording phrases that burrow into your subconscious which I suppose for many people, coupled with their insipidly basic music, is part of the reason they're so popular - as has been said before, they are quintessentially a boyband for the 6 Music crowd - but for me all the ingredients are wrong and I remain staunchly cynical towards everything they do.

My immediate thought was he'd been 'inspired' by Stewart Lee's 'moving to the country' bit from S2 of Comedy Vehicle.

I have to admit that bit gets stuck in my head too - but then so does Baby Shark more often than not. The rigour of political analysis is about the same as well.

My earworm has mutated into interpolating Alan Partridge's complaints about farmers into the lyrics.

I've seen the big-eared boys IN THE VILLAGE
Feeding burgers to swans IN THE VILLAGE


etc.

It's making it all less painful, it has to be said.

Blimey, it's an interesting article about Idles, among other things. In the Guardian!
