December 2009

auldtapes.wordpress.com: "Following on from some recent comments here on this blog, I feel it is apt to present at this point, the second track from the session with The Idiots in Lansdowne Studios around the end of 1991.

As you will hear, they were way ahead of their time – The more I listen, the more I think that the lyrics must have been written after some wild premonitions!"

Road Records: "Beautiful Unit "European Son"
The debut solo album from former idiots guitarist and trust me im a thief head honcho brian mooney. The album was recorded in various darkened parts of dublin over the last 14 years so you can expect quite a variety of sounds on this one. The album goes right back to a previously unreleased idiots tracks and also features contributions from former idiot jimmy eadie throughout. Dylan phillips from pet lamb and dinah brand also guests. The album features a lovely downbeat collection of everything from squelchy electronic sound effects to mellow folk to beat driven indie rock. An album of beautifully eclectic lo fi indie rock.

"Glasgow's finest sex-diary reading, tortured-relationship revealing, immaculately-crafted pop two-piece play a one-off Dublin show in support of their fine new album, The Red Thread. Support comes from reclusive rockers The Idiots, in what probably counts as this year's annual appearance."

"Rumour around town has it the The Idiots are heading off in the next few weeks to England to record a new album as a follow up to their 18th century classic. The album is going to be recorded in William Reid's studio (Jesus And Mary Chain) so we are all hoping that the guys make it back and get to release the album before the dinosaurs come back."
