Product Description

Product Description

Sleaford Mods started out sometime during 2006 whilst Jason Williamson was living in Nottingham. Born out of part frustration and part accident, it quickly found its feet as an aggressive verbal onslaught on all that is contrived and connected to the day-to-day hammer of low paid employment and domestic situations arising from that trap. After a year of working ideas out in both the studio and in live performance around Nottingham, Williamson moved south and took the cause to London for a couple of years, before returning to Nottingham in 2009. Soon after that he that he met Andrew Fearn and the Sleaford Mods became a duo. Fearn's first work was on the production of 'Wank' the Mods' fifth CDr album. Soon after he started stalking the studio and stage with Williamson. Just after the release of 'Wank' the duo were invited to play a three day festival curated by Nottingham's Rammel Club. During that weekend they were introduced to the Harbinger Sound label. A meeting which a year later resulted in the release of Austerity Dogs . Numerous shows around the UK and Europe followed, including further festival appearances. Rave reviews of the album have appeared in magazines as diverse as The Wire and Uncut, along with interviews being published both on paper and on the internet, both here and abroad. With more international dates on the horizon including excursions to Poland and Sweden the interest in the Mods continues to spread.

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 Jan. 2014
Format: Audio CD
Sleaford Mods are duo Jason Williamson (words and voice) and Andrew
Fearn (just about everything else). 'Austerity Dogs' signals their
rebirth on the Harbinger Sound label but a few of the numbers on this
album have seen the light of day before on their onanistically-titled
debut (seek and find for greater clarification!) It's an absolute hoot.

Their compositions reflect the kind of socially-conscious, brash, potty-mouthed
and very, very funny spirit which, I feel quite sure, would have had our
long-lost friend Ian Dury chuckling gleefully in the wings were he still with us.

There are twelve tracks in the set. Mr Williamson's voice is an unaffected
and uncompromising joy. He spits and snarls and rants like a man who has had
more than a little experience of Friday nights going badly wrong when the
pubs have shut in Nottingham and the kebab shops and burger vans beckon.
He is also a poet. Sort-of. A crafty rhymer and quite possibly a tad dangerous.

His gritty lyrical inventions crackle and splatter over the foundations of Mr Fearn's
spare arrangements (rattling bass, four-square percussion and rough-and-ready
guitar). It is a nerve-jangling experience. This proves to be a good thing.

Best of the bunch are the hilarious 'McFlurry', a curiously infectious stomper;
'P.P.O. Kissin' Behinds' which sports a jaunty tune worthy of a bargain-basement
version of The Streets and 'Donkey', a surreal little sweat-drenched nightmare.

Play it loud and scare the neighbours!

If you've been dreaming of a British band that says something meaningful about the miserable post-New Labour Con-Dem Britain in which we live, then Nottingham's Sleaford Mods are here to help. Basic clunking laptop rhythms and distorted simple bass lines pound away whilst some of the best lyrics I've heard in ages are aggressively (and swearily) spouted. It's treatise on the failure of capitalism, the vacant brand-obsessed consumer culture and the general living standards in Britain today. Akin to The Fall in ethic, if not sound - the more you listen to it, the more it appears that Sleaford Mods have hit upon a formula close to genius. Highly recommended.

Best album of 2013, best band out there at the moment. Angry and relevant, tells it like it is. Perfect soundtrack for the late capitalist nightmare that is Britain in 2014.

It's just a brilliant album, very punky, very angry but with a great sense of humour too. The music is quite basic, a drum machine, a bass guitar and a few frills, with Jason Williamson venting his spleen and getting a few things off his chest over the top. But the overall effect is captivating. Maybe not everyone's chickwich, but for me they're the most relevant band going at the moment. And "Divide And Exit" is even better.

An amalgam of The Streets, Sex Pistols, John Cooper Clarke and Selfish C***
Utterly fascinating to listen to Jason vent his spleen. Buy it
