A Reissue of the classic 2013 album. Once dismissed around their native Nottingham as, "two skip rats with a laptop," the Sleaford Mods have simply knocked all their distractors clear out of the way. 

+ Limited Indie version is pressed on neon yellow coloured vinyl.

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. 

The mounting hysteria surrounding their 2013 album 'Austerity Dogs' has spread like chlamydia at a teenage house party and saw them topping many 'End of Year' lists worldwide. Along with a handful of limited 7" releases on labels as diverse as Matador and X-Mist.

Fearn's beats and loops will pull you up into the urgency of Sleaford Mods and they also allow you to run the gauntlet from deliberate clumsy dance-floor swaggers to full-on punk throwabouts with them.

Williamson is let free to spit out his un-empathic litany of bile and anger towards the bloated and tedious. His verbal salvos and side-swipes are often savage and brutal, yet at turns, hilarious, but always spot on as Sleaford Mods rage and despair as the country sinks deeper into a cesspool of its own idiocy. It's an album that doesn't have the privilege of luxury, indulgence or extravaganza and it will strike a resonant chord with many because it simply refuses to compromise.

If you need a pointer try and imagine an East Midlands take on Suicide that survived rave culture and looked to the Wu-Tang Clan for the escape hatch. The down to earth observations and story-telling of Ian Dury or Patrik Fitzgerald are maybe closer than any other names flung about in desperation. If you wish to tag and place Sleaford Mods you're only limiting yourself.
