But are apologies really accepted?

I seem to be in a nostalgic mood at the moment, posting songs based on their 10th or 30th anniversaries. There will probably be more such posts in the future, so look out for those. Tonight, for instance.

Ten years ago this week, Idlewild released their debut single, 'Queen of the Troubled Teens'. In 1997, the band were likened to 'a flight of stairs falling down a flight of stairs' and made a lot of noise. If you're only familiar with their recent output, this song may be a surprise. It's not adult friendly, the lyrics are pretty throwaway and there's about as much of an REM influence as there is a Sly and the Family Stone influence. But it still rocks like a fucking truck.
