    stockwelljonny Wait here I have gone to get help

    Saw them last night at the Roundhouse having only come to them recently and not heard a lot of their stuff. I thought they were brilliant, really powerful presence and set, not what I was expecting, a lot more to it. The relentlesss lyrics and the pounding bassline groove really works. Lead singer has a really great voice and range, which he uses, hadn't expected the delicacy mixed with the ferocity, plus some performance art feel stuff going on. Crowd were going mental, great atmosphere. Everyone left with smiles having conversations with random other punters about how great it was ;-)

    PS they are playing 100 club this eve and looks like there are still tickets, that would be great place to see them...

    Got tickets for Rock City in November, but the Rough trade record signing event looked pretty good.

    Still my fav tune of theirs Jobseeker. The 7" has gone for £200 or so on discogs (it doesn't now tho as I discovered speculatively listing it)

    A friend shared an interview in the quietus where he slags off Stomzy for sharing a stage with Ed Sheeran... I'd recently been reminded that Sleaford Mods had contributed tracks to the latest (awful) Leftfield and Prodigy albums, and suggested he wasn't really in a position to sit in judgement over other people making similar creative/commercial decisions... forgetting that he was also mutual friends with the sharer.

    I guess it touched a nerve.

    I'm considering making a primitive hiphop loop using an old post punk track and setting his rant to music. ;)

    Stormzy isnt all that either IMO - hype-talk is in FULL effect over him. He's alright - good luck to him - but not exceptional, and some of his tunes are pretty poor tbh.
    i think the expression-of-2017 is #doubledown
     
  26. killer b

    killer b Ennui Rollins

    Oh absolutely - Stormzy is pretty weak IMO. Which makes his decision to grasp the chance of appearing with the biggest pop star in the world all the more sensible. He's not got a long career ahead of him so he should make his money while he can.

    Whereas Sleaford Mod are doing fine - their decision to contribute cast-off tracks to the dead-eyed money farms that were the last Leftfield & Prodigy albums has helped them make the jump in fanbase from middle aged men who still listen to new music to middle aged men who buy one album a year. They're made now, cause that one album will probably be theirs...

    I do think collaborating on an album track is different to collaborating on a one-off medley of hits purely for a star studded corporate award show tho

    :D oh joy. I missed this.
    I'm feeling pleasingly/disappointingly non partisan about it though.
    his point seems to be - being invited by people whose previous records you admired to do a guest spot and going 'yes mate' is not the same as going 'yeah okay I'll go on with mr popular pants who ain't even my equal but sells loads more records'

    by degree, as rutabowa said

    "I don't give a fuck about what you did back in the day, what you're doing now is useless, you just drink too much mate" as somebody else suggested
