or maybe I’m just pretentious.
Well, it’s a fun film, and they’re fun punks; there’s a notable dissonance between Idles’ music and collective persona. And yet Idles are a colourful bunch whose debut, 2016’s ‘Brutalism’, peppered their righteous punk with bizarre jokes ( Mary Berry loves reggae, So why don’t you love reggae? )
When Bristol post-punks IDLES released their debut album Brutalism in March 2017, the band quickly realised their luck might be on the turn. After five years of toil in the nation's pubs and dive bars, the album was picked up by new music champion Steve Lamacq, and as a result, catapulted into the public domain. The album, a viscerally honest takedown of the pressures of modern life, resonated with audiences in a way few new bands manage. Then we just fucked it off – we scrapped loads of songs and went back to the drawing board and Joy As An Act Of Resistance happened very quickly as a resistance to the pressures. As a form of resistance, we just decided to not care about it anymore.
IDLES’ new album concerns the tragedies of illness and loss, the addict’s vacillation between sobriety and vice, and the discomfort of rational people at the current state of the world. Joe Talbot, the band’s sardonic, growling singer, lost his disabled mother, cleaned up his substance abuse, and watched the xenophobic Brexit go down-all while his Bristol-based post-punk quintet blew up in his home country. While they mined grief and addiction on their heralded 2017 debut, Brutalism, its follow-up seeks to further focus their notorious, explosive, tongue-in-cheek energy . While IDLES don’t sound dishonest on Joy as an Act of Resistance, both the urgency and the vagueness of this record create the impression that a declaration of joy might be a little premature.

Addressing politics in pop is supposed to be a tricky balancing act, yet Idles frontman Joe Talbot charges across the tightrope in heavy boots, screaming in the face of the farce unfolding around him. There is untrammelled aggression in his voice, a directness that leaves spittle on your cheeks, but it is humour, not anger, that he uses as his most devastating weapon. On Never Fight a Man With a Perm, he mocks a coked-up, white-shirted Neanderthal: You look like a walking thyroid, You’re not a man, you’re a gland, You’re one big neck with sausage hands. Difficult as the subject matter could be, Joy As An Act of Resistance never feels suffocating. Whenever you feel you are gasping for air, a huge chorus or a burst of snarling wit comes along to puncture the gloom. The joy of the title might at first seem like yet another joke, but for all the bleakness, this is a cathartic and enlivening album.
