Sleaford Mods heading to Sheffield’s PlugPosted by: Ashley Birch
Electro post-punk duo Sleaford mods hit the Steel City next month
Sleaford Mods’ Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn are bringing their politically charged, angry vignettes of modern-day Britain to Sheffield’s Plug on 14 March, in support of their fifth studio album ‘Eton Alive’.
The album, which is due for release on 22 February and features 12 new tracks, was recorded in their home town Nottingham and will be the first release on the pair’s newly formed label ‘Extreme Eating’, and their first album since parting ways with Rough Trade Records.
Talking about the new album, Jason Williamson said: “Eton Alive speaks for itself really. Here we are once again in the middle of another elitist plan being digested slowly as we wait to be turned into faeces once more.
“Some already are, some are dead and the rest of us erode in the belly of prehistoric ideology which depending on our abilities and willingness, assigns to each of us varying levels of comfort that range from horrible to reasonably acceptable, based on contribution.
“So after the digestive system of the Nobles rejects our inedible bones we exit the Arse of Rule, we fall into the toilet again and at the mercy of whatever policies are holding order in the shit pipe of this tatty civilisation. It is here our flesh regenerates as we rattle into another form, ready, and ripe for order”.
Sounds like it’s going to be another cheery one, eh?!
Tickets for the Plug show are available through See Tickets, priced at £21.45.
