Here's an exclusive look at the band's new line-up...

Here’s the first picture of the new Idlewild line-up, following bassist BOB FAIRFOULL’s exit from the band.

Gavin Fox from Irish band Turn (third from left) is the new Idlewild bassist. He will begin touring with the band in January 2003. Original bassist Fairfoull fell out with the rest of Idlewild while on tour in October and left the band by mutual agreement.

The new line-up also features the band’s live guitarist Allan Stewart as a full-time member (far left).

Idlewild launch their UK tour at Sheffield Octagon on Thursday (December 5), with temporary member Alex Grant on bass.
