The buzz so far Idlewild guitarist Rod Jones has not been twiddling his thumbs idly while the Edinburgh-birthed band are on hiatus.

No, he’s been getting busy with one of his many other projects, The Birthday Suit, and their sophomore LP, A Conversation Well Rehearsed.

From the indie-rock of A Can of Worms, to punkier tracks like Uh-Huh Uh-Huh, and the soaring You Deserve So Much Better, it’s characterised by its diversity and infectious hooks. 

The Critics say
“With material this good, Idlewild’s hiatus could be long” Kerrang magazine
