Idlewild frontman Roddy Woomble chatted with Dean Kuipers of the LA Times, explaining how for two years at the dawn of the ’90s, when he was 14 and 15, he lived in the U.S. and discovered the smarter side of American hard-core punk. “American indie rock, that was really the kind of music that excited me,” Woomble said. “We’d travel quite far from where we grew up in the north of Scotland just to see Americans holding guitars, you know? There’s some mystery and romance to it that you just didn’t have.” Calendarlive.com has since removed the article.
