Joy as an Act of Resistance
Produced by Space and mixed by Adam Greenspan and Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Kate Bush, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), ‘Joy as an Act of Resistance’ takes aim at everything from
toxic masculinity, nationalism, immigration and class inequality - all while maintaining a visceral, infectious positivity.
To celebrate five years since its original release in 2018, the deluxe vinyl has been reissued for the very first time. Pressed on 180g vinyl, it features interchangeable album artwork: 8 double-sided inserts with 16 original art prints from the ‘Joy as an Act of Resistance’ exhibition, all housed in a gold glitter die-cut gatefold jacket.
“‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’ is a parade. It’s a parade of laughing at the funeral, of listening to the bastards, of phlegm on the mirror. It’s a parade of my Grandfather’s
wit, it is all the shit haircuts I’ve ever had. It is a parade of naivety, of a warm embrace, it is Young Thug’s dress. It’s the parade of being carried through the grim dark. It’s a
parade of laughing at yourself. It is love. It is loving yourself. It is a parade of Tony Benn’s smile. It is Idles, for now. It’s the beautiful smell of immigrant food. It is a parade of vulnerability. It is Ilie Nastase. It’s a parade of being at your worst. It is our best, for now. It is our thank you. It is our sorry. It is a parade without fluff but with a
tonne of glitter and violence. It is a parade of what I truly miss and what I truly have. It is a parade of the second album. It is us cutting its fucking head off. It is a parade of joy in the face of all we don’t want and all we fear. It is a parade of you.” - Joe Talbot, IDLES
