“Catchy melodies juxtaposed with crass and expletive-laden lyrics… It’s a tireless takedown of privileged politicians living in luxury as the country falls further into poverty, and sums up what Sleaford Mods do.” – Loud & Quiet
“An urgent, precise takedown of Britain’s ugly sub-conscious… their sharpness and humour are as strong as ever.” – CLASH
“…his richly detailed, brutally succinct lyrics are like weapons of mass verbal destruction.” – Sunday Times Culture
“Nudge It is grubby, dangerous, and perfectly pissed off” – Guardian Guide
Following their latest singles ‘Shortcummings’ and ‘Mork n Mindy ft. Billy Nomates’, today Nottingham-based duo Sleaford Mods release new single & video ‘Nudge It (ft Amy Taylor from Amyl and the Sniffers)’. The single comes ahead of the release of their highly-anticipated sixth studio album Spare Ribsout this Friday 15 January via Rough Trade / Remote Control Records.
Of the new single, the band’s Jason Williamson says “Imagine you’ve got limited options, unsure how you’re getting by that week, looking out the window of the damp flat you don’t want to live in, and seeing a bunch of posers having a photo shoot because ‘cool architecture bro, we feel your pain’.
Reduced circumstance isn’t a pantomime. If you haven’t lived within its confines don’t use it to enamour your ideas. It confuses the platform for those that truly live it and more often than not buries creative breakthroughs because the arena is polluted by the view of their world through someone else’s privileged lens. So beware the eager networkers, don’t settle for the 20p pay-out, nudge it, pop the posers. And don’t apologise for the fucker either.”
‘Nudge It’ partners Williamson’s trademark lyrical wit with the energetic and unmistakeable vocals of Amy Taylor from Australian punk-rock band Amyl and the Sniffers. The polemical Williamson and dexterous producer Andrew Fearn kick against the pricks with unrivalled bite, railing against hypocrisy, inequality and apathy with their inimitable, scabrous sense of humour. New album Spare Ribs finds the duo charged with ire at the UK Government’s sense of entitlement, epitomised by its devil-may-care approach to the coronavirus crisis.
Sleaford Mods have created a one-hour ‘SMtv’ Spare Ribs Special TV show. The programme features interviews with the band and album collaborators Billy Nomates and Amy Taylor, alongside live footage from their unforgettable 100 Club livestream plus cameos from special guests including John Thomson, Robbie Williams, Iggy Pop and more. ‘SMtv’ will be broadcast at 7AM AEDT on Sunday 17th January on the band’s YouTube channel.
