Idlewild replace The Enemy at Camden Crawl

Tom Clarke lost his voice – so the Scots stepped in

Idlewild were brought in as last-minute replacements after The Enemy pulled out of their headline slot at the Camden Crawl festival last night (April 24).

Fans at the Roundhouse were told at the door that the Coventry band wouldn’t perform due to frontman Tom Clarke losing his voice.

Inside the venue, Idlewild frontman Roddy Woomble was apologetic towards the crowd before launching into opener ‘Little Discourage’ at 10:30pm (BST).


Playing songs from throughout their career as well as new song ‘City Hall’, the Scots kept chat to a minimum, though after playing ‘In Remote Part/Scottish Fiction’ Woomble told the crowd to enjoy the Camden nightlife.

The Enemy are set to reschedule their cancelled gig for wristbands holders.

Idlewild played:

‘Little Discourage’
‘City Hall’
‘These Wooden Ideas’
‘You Held The World In Your Arms’
‘In a Hiding Place’
‘Actually it’s Darkness’
‘Listen to What You’ve Got’
‘When I Argue I See Shapes’
‘In Remote Part/Scottish Fiction’
