Video of the Moment #2315: Sleaford Mods

By on Tuesday, 7th March 2017 at 6:00 pm

Sleaford Mods – Jason Williamson (words, often of a political bent) and Andrew Fearn (music) – released their newest album on Friday. ‘English Tapas’, the follow-up to 2015s ‘Key Markets’, is out now on Rough Trade Records. The latest video from the Nottingham post-punk and social consciousness duo is for album track ‘Moptop’. It was directed by their frequent collaborator Simon Parfrement and filmed in a friend’s kitchen. ‘Moptop’, like ‘T.C.R.’ before it, is a catchy tune of the highest calibre, which is pretty cool considering it’s about a particularly polarising figure in Britain’s recent history. Williamson says the song is “based around the disgusting lie that is Boris Johnson, the wannabe Churchill (We don’t need another one). The song also discusses the void that is modern music, internet attention spans, one dimensional acts and the current trend of reformed bands looking to cash in with PR heavy assaults that try to conceal their pointlessness.” Watch the video and its small, yet effective strobe light below.
