As one of the most important, politically charged and thought-provoking bands in music today, have been running crass but clever commentary on The People’s discontent, their five critically acclaimed albums a pre-Boris crystal ball of impending doom.
Stumbling into the music scene in 2013 at a time of political and creative austerity, their breakthrough album ‘Austerity Dogs’ surprised many and caught the moment, spearheading a punk renaissance and paving the way for a generation of new artists.
On paper it shouldn’t work. Andrew Fearn‘s functional beats, post-punk bass, cheap keyboard riffs and wafts of guitar underpin lyricist Jason Williamson as he rages against austerity-era stagnation, his anger a call-to-arms to all of us who work under a system that privileges the wealth of the few over the bare comfort of the many. The result is exhilarating, cathartic and brutally brilliant bass heavy dance floor tunes with a message that makes as vital politically as they are artistically.
On finally touring ‘down under’ Jason says, ‘After a load of grief online about not playin’ Australia, we’re finally coming. Me and Andrew are big fans of your music scene, you’ve got some quality bands breaking through so we’re lookin’ forward to it. Buzzin’!’

“Undoubtedly, absolutely, definitely the world’s greatest rock n roll band.”
“Hands up who thinks Sleaford Mods are the best band in the world. The rest of you are wrong.”
Daffodils for Wordsworth; Boris Johnson, baleful high street pubs and a king sized bag of Quavers for Williamson.”
“Minimal and brutal.”
“Foul-mouthed left-wing duo.”
“A poetic blast of classic rage.”
“A currently unrivalled feast for the mind.”
“Nobody can touch Sleaford Mods right now.”
“Jason Williamson’s populist fury is razor sharp.”
“Something potent, original and unique.”
“Scalding excoriations of modern life.”
“Fierce yet killer funny, dense but never flabby, this is bile with mileage.”
“Biting humour and sharp observations of an uncomfortably recognisable contemporary Britain.”
“Anger is still the foremost energy, but there is a much richer seam of humour than they like to let on. Their set is relentlessly powerful.”
