HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Thurs Oct 23 - Sleaford Mods at The 100 Club
Sometimes erroneously lumped together with the woeful Fat White Family - simply because they're both supposedly a reflection of austerity culture - Sleaford Mods are a far sharper, more thrilling proposition. Jason Williamson's tales of life in the Britain of UKIP and rampant social inequality may be peppered with a tourette's level of scatology and random, unfocussed swearing, but amongst the rubble there are serious points being made about the mental state of the country. "Can of Strongbow/I'm a mess/Desperately clutching on to a leaflet on depression/Supplied by the NHS" from "Jobseeker" probably says more about UK right now than any song that's been released in the last two years. If they can keep it together, Sleaford Mods could well become a landmark band. We'll see. No one else is tackling this stuff right now, that's for sure.
