Sweet 16 with Joe Talbot from Idles

A brutal year, punctuated by politics, UK garage and a job at the supermarket check-out

Idles frontman Joe Talbot didn’t have an easy 16th year – it was tragic, challenging and ultimately transformative – but it was also the year he got a supermarket job, engaged with politics and discovered a love for UK Garage/hip-hop/indie-rock.

Recorded in front of a live audience at the Erased Tapes Sound Gallery, London, on 27 April 2018, this is the very third episode of our Sweet 16 podcast – inspired by our column of the same name.

Listen below or via your podcast app, to this episode on the others in Series One – Joe Mount from Metronomy, Theresa Wayman from Warpaint and Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
