The DM’s Boot Room always plays host to the new and the next, the emerging and the established. So with 10 years in the music scene and a Brit nomination under their belts, IDLES have been on the Docs radar for some time.
We brought them to Camden on a Monday night to play to an intimate set to a 60-capacity audience, and it didn’t disappoint.
Check out our interview with the band ahead of their set…

As fans start to appear outside our Camden Boot Room venue, we spot some Docs amongst them. From 1460s to 1490s, our most classic styles are out in force.
Alongside our extra-height Jagger boots and archive vintage Church boots.
Not a band known for easing into a set, things kick-off pretty quickly with frontman Joe facing down a packed out, energetic crowd.
The same raucous energy is echoed throughout the band as they stomp around the stage.
…and into the crowd.
Crashing riffs and on-stage jokes are peppered throughout the set, including tracks from their first album Brutalism and their of the moment, Brit-nominated second album ‘Joy as an Act of Resistance‘.
Fans were treated to an exclusive new song and a warning that came with it: “Put your phones away. If anyone films or records this I’m stopping and going home.”
As the show draws to an end, chanting fans thrash around, hands in the air, bringing the same high-energy to the last song as they did the first.
