Great album. But the Pistols, John Cooper Clarke, Fall references are a bit obvious and not supported by the band themselves. Firstly this is one of the funniest albums I have heard in a long time. Genuinely witty in a very British way. This album does not make you want to overthrow the government, it makes you want to smile and crack a Stella. James makes a great performer and Andrew's stage persona is just genius. He makes no attempt to pretend to play, or even mix, he just presses play on the computer and stands there jigging, necking a beer. The lack of pretence is refreshing. Other lap top based artists spend there time fiddling with mixers and frowning in concentration and you just know they are hardly doing a thing. So Andrew just presses play. The bass and drum loops are very basic, are they? They sound it. Yet each loop is really memorable. Like the best bits of classic songs, snipped and looped.
What I am hearing is not the bands mentioned above, but Metal Box era PIL, Can, Lightening Bolt
The music sounds simple, but its very well written
A lot of music today sounds very well polished, but is at its root very simple
These guys have nothing to hide behind, no production values, no auto-tune
And the lyrics are soo good, the bad language is there to fool you into thinking its crass
Its not, it's really smart

Anything even approaching a comparison is lazy. Name checking groups like The Streets, The Fall etc is fine, but I personally have never heard a band like Sleaford Mods. Perhaps a pisstake, but mostly true. Hailing from just outside sleaford, Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn embody modernist culture. This isn't a throwback. This is a throw up. A throw up of everything wrong with britain. Pushing the boundaries with visceral, sarcastic lyrics and layered beats and bass, these two men are a formidable force. They aren't in it for the money, to find a niche audience, to schmooze or garner publicity. This is working class poetry. If every person who hated their job was to listen to this album, they'd walk in on Monday morning with a resignation letter. Visceral, sarcastic, witty lyrics that will make you laugh or cry. I'm a firm believer in music that tugs by the heart strings or by the hair. This does both. This is the sound of pissed off britain. These boys are the ones to watch. See them live before they start selling out bigger venues.

Angriest and sharpest album I've heard in a couple of years... The ferocious swearing will drive away some; but underneath the rawness, incredible truth is being spat out. At times it's reminiscent of the energy of the Stooges, but with the political sensibility of a Billy Bragg or Woody Guthrie. The angriest point the Streets ever reached is the starting point for this fierce team. There are tunes in there too; but this is really so much more about the words... I await the next instalment with interest.

What can I say? Awesome. If you don't know them I'd YouTube them before purchasing, they are a real 'Marmite' band... and I LOVE it.

Raw outbursts of truth - Will make you laugh, will make you think. Steve Ignorant meets Scor-zay-zee. A blast of fresh air to shake a tamed down music business.

It's ok, slightly different, I really liked 'Tied up in Nottz' when I first heard it, but I have to admit that it doesn't get played a great amount. It can be a little repetitive. I can't remember how much it was, but worth buying it if it's cheap enough (if you know what I mean...).

Intelligent ranting,the voice over basic beats just works, if you're new to Sleaford Mods then I'd suggest Divide And Exit over Chubbed Up, beware of strong language though the lyrics are so poignant to the UK in 2014, that's what makes SM great,telling it as it is.

Love love love it. These are red dogs but incredible red dogs. I stopped writing years ago but this has inspired me again. The smell of piss is so strong it smells like decent bacon, PRICELESS!!
