On this day in 1998: Idlewild released a record that married their notorious live shows with a melodic splendour. In hindsight, it's a record that seemed a little out of place and time. Amidst the dying embers of Brit-pop, they relished in the joy of making a racket. A big ol' noise with hooks, and the occasional quiet bit. By channelling a similar angular melange of band's like Pavement, Mudhoney and Sonic Youth that fed into grunge, the Scots took indie-ish rock in a different direction. Whilst journalists tried to invent genres like "Brit-Rock" or "Nu-Punk" to define the band, the young Scots just did their ferocious thing with a side-order of poetic license - they even had 'Support Your Local Poet' t-shirts! Following a bidding war, they signed to Food Records/EMI to release this debut LP. The label was home to Blur, who would take a little influence from Idlewild's feast of noise with their self-titled album and mega-hit 'Song 2' It's easy to undestimate the impact of the band's debut but speak to musicians, journalists, label heads, DJs, and promoters around the UK - especially in Scotland - who are in their 30s and 40s, and they'll likely tell you how an Idlewild gig changed their DNA. This record's legacy is easy to overstate, as the band continue to evolve and hone their folk-punk sound two decades later. They set the stage for Scots like Biffy Clyro and Frightened Rabbit, and they primed the tastebuds of a generation for indie-rock acts like The National, Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and many more to come over here and blow us away. However, unlike acts whose impact was greater than their success - Buzzcocks and Magazine etc in the 70s - their cultural resonance has been diluted by swathes of other acts and cultural movements. So 20 years on, take a moment to thank the band and to revisit the record tracks from the LP and frontman Roddy Woomble discussing the album with Huw Stephens - sitting in for Steve Lamacq, who helped release the band's mini-album, Captain, on Deceptive, the independent label he co-started, which released acts including Elastica, Placebo, and Shampoo.
