I saw part of Idlewild's set last night. These Scots work pretty hard, and were impressively together, yet the place was maybe a quarter ful and I couldn't quite put my finger on why the band has yet to break in America. Too smart? Too Scottish? Too wimpy? Too loud? If Capitol records really wanted to make a buck off of them in the U.S., they'd tag them as emo and put them on a co-headling tour with Jimmy Eat World or something.
