"We are very happy to announce several The Remote Part shows, where we will celebrate the album's 20th anniversary by playing it in full.

 

"Released on July 15th 2002, The Remote Part became our most critically and commercially successful record. It entered the UK album charts at number three, and spawned several hit singles with You Held The World In Your Arms and American English."

 

'You have no idea how fascinating Idlewild is.'

 

Named after the quiet meeting place in Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic children's novel Anne of Green Gables, the band formed 25 years ago in Edinburgh by Roddy Woomble, Colin Newton, and Rod Jones has more than lived up to the above description. Across nine studio albums, Idlewild have delighted and charmed fans all over the world for a quarter of a century with their sweeping, melodic songs full of soaring choruses and poetic lyrics.

 

Initially a ramshackle punk rock band (famously described as sounding like 'a flight of stairs falling down a flight of stairs') and taking their influence from underground US rock, the band developed over time to include a variety of influences, from indie rock, to country rock and folk. Their albums 100 Broken Windows and The Remote Part were critical and commercial hits, and proved influential for a whole new generation of Scottish bands. Idlewild are perhaps the definition of a cult band, yet one who have infiltrated the mainstream. They are a band who have had plenty of hits (8 top 30 singles and 6 top 30 albums, for those who are counting), yet have rarely had to compromise themselves to achieve them.
