    Default Sleaford Mods

    Anyone else a fan? At first I thought it was the worst thing I'd ever heard. But I kept wanting to hear it again. Now I think it's genius. Bits of The Fall, John Cooper Clarke, The Streets, Half Man Half Biscuit and - weirdest of all - Le Tigre.

    One of the few musical highlights of 2013. Can't wait for the new album.

    some bits are really brilliant, really, really brilliant. they dunarf go on a bit tho, and some of the choruses are fufu but they get a win for "donkey" alone, best sampling of an animal since Missy Elliott's elephant.

    That's definitely a thread-in-waiting. Cypress hill and morrissey, together at last.

    Sleaford mods are pretty good an' all. Im waiting for the krautrock-style remixes.

    Judging from the youtube videos I've seen the perfomance job in the band of the guy with the hat seems to be: head nodding beer drinking.

    They were utterly brilliant last night.

    1. Amazingly, given the high swear count in the songs themselves, extra off-mic swear words were added.

    2. In addition to drinking about 3 cans of lager, Andrew Fearn also checked his texts and took a photo.

    3. Audience sing-a-longs (Job Seeker- now an anthem)

    4. They're a complex proposition.

    5. My wife's new favourite band! She was visibly shocked by how good they were.

    6. Fuck off. Cunt.

    Great review!

    Never been able to see them in London for all sorts of boring reasons.

    Also loved this review. Points 4 and 6 alone trump K-Punk's entire Wire piece (I don't disagree with anything he says "but it's all so fucking boring").

    He's showing what can be done by standing up and saying stuff bluntly then pulling faces and staring. As someone who spent time on top decks of buses in Nottingham as a kid, I can honestly say there was so much gobby fuckery about this had to happen.

    Also love that you get a patch with the 7" like Discharge.
