BEFORE they became Scotland’s answer to REM and thier members began releasing solo folk projects, Idlewild used to rock, and rock hard.
100 Broken Windows, the group’s 2000 breakthrough release, is a brilliant collection of hook-laden tracks that hinted at the softening to follow, but wrapped in an aggressive barrage of grungey overdrive.
And with catchy tracks like Actually It’s Darkness, Roseability and These Wooden Ideas, it’s no wonder that 100 Broken Windows broke the band.
