Due to extreme demand, this show has been moved to The Triffid. All tickets already purchased for this show will still be valid at the new venue.

Call them minimalist agit-rock, beat-based political punk, or...don’t, but what youcan’t call Sleaford Modsis half-arsed. They’re aggressive, abrasive, andunabashed in their lyrical support for England’s working class and in railing againstthe oligarchs who deny people their basic human and civil rights.

Vocalist Jason Williamson shouts against austerity-era Britain’s malaise andstagnation with plenty of profanity, but even more cleverness and wit; and while hislyrics specify conditions in his home country, his anger and call-to-arms can uniteall of us who witness and work under a system that privileges the wealth of the few over the bare comfort, and even the survival, of the just-as-worthy many.

With Andrew Fearn‘s deceptively simple beats and melodies underpinning Williamson’s virtuosic vocal performances, this would be a fascinating act, messageor no; but the drive, meaning, and compassion behind their catchy, and even dancefloor-ready tunes make Sleaford Mods as vital politically as they are artistically.
