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.
