Forcément mises à mal par une pandémie qui n’en finit plus, les salles indé anglaises vont “profiter” de l’exposition offerte par Idles et son nouveau clip “Carcinogenic”. Vu que c’est la semaine des salles indé en Angleterre, le groupe est allé filmer chaque membre dans une salle différente de Bristol dont ils viennent (The Louisiana, Exchange, The Mother’s Ruin, The Old Duke et Trinity Centre).
Le guitariste Mark Bowen explique :
“Now more than ever independent musicians and the music industry at large need to unite to keep from being decimated. Between the pandemic and a government who not only don’t care about the future of the arts (especially independence within the arts) but take a pro-active role in its diminishment, independent venues are at greatest risk because they are mostly small businesses, not interested in profit or investors but in the nourishment of creative, open-minded, critical thinking. Independent venues are the fertile soil in which the future of the performing arts will grow. They are where your future favourite band will play, where the best song ever written will be tested out, where the new can bud and flourish. They are also vital for a sense of community and union, something people sorely need and miss at this time, without them we’re all fucked.”
