    Can't we just be happy one of the few good bands did good? NO of course not ha that's why I like that "just like we do" song.

    He sounds a bit like John Lydon on 'I Feel So Wrong' off the new one. Suits him I think.

    Did they not sell much then? I guess the one-album-a-year-man market isn't as big as they'd hoped then. Sad,

    Hopefully their tour in May should attract enough of the one-E-a-year crowd to turn a profit.

    Sleaziest mods have way less overheads and people to pay than the prodigy! Canny.

    I'm loving the new album. I like how each album they just tweek their sound ever so slightly so it keeps the same formula but it's subtly different. Drayton Manored is my favourite song on it, whenever I hear that buzzer in a shop I sing 'A trip to spa is like a trip to Mars' to myself :D. It's the subtleties of every day life he puts across that really stand out to me, like the way he says 'look at you' on BHS and then does that sound after it, it's the same way you generally take the piss out ya mates at work or whatever. I think they'll be judged by history as extremely relevant to these times, they're judged as that now by people who relate to it I think.

    Saw this last night. It's too long but well worth catching. The live performances are captured brilliantly and only helps to show how despite their minimal setup it looks like a great gig with Jason's performance a small miracle. Steve their manager is also given alot of time as he's seen as the 3rd member, helping them to finally achieve fame.

    So I need some Sleaford Mods in my life, which album is best or should I just cherry pick some tracks?

    I reckon Divide and Exit is their best so far, but they're all pretty decent, including the new one English Tapas

    eta: Post-Brexit, Divide and Exit now seems like a really prescient title

    I second divide and exit as the place to start. The song 'You're Brave' is one of my favourite, probably my favourite actually, of theirs and it always gets overlooked. 'Middlemen' is another one and of course 'tweet, tweet, tweet.'

    E2a: they're all songs on the divide and exit album.

    All of them :thumbs:

    Divide and Exit is probably a good starting point as mentioned. I'd recommend watching some of their live stuff too, the albums are a bit restrained in comparison :D

    imo the Jobseeker single is the best way in, it is such a tune. I mean all their records are consistently good but I doubt they will ever beat this just musically, and for the shock of hearing it for the first time when it came out

    (i facebook messaged the band site soon as i heard it for the first time and jason sent me one of the last band copies of the 7" so i instantly knew they were good guys too)

    Someone has kindly posted the long out of print, pre-Andrew Fearn albums on YouTube in the last couple of months. Worth a listen if you can't get enough.

    friedaweed Sitting down for a wee

    A mate (Probably my oldest friend in the world), gave me a present on my wedding day in May. It was a parcel wrapped up in shitty brown paper and stuck down with parcel tape. I knew it was going to be a funny one as he's a funny cunt.:hmm:

    I unwrapped it when we finally got back to the bridal suite. It had been a long day so the Mrs removed her wedding dress and was sat in her wonerful underwear ordering a cheese butty and a pot of tea from room service...

    "Can you ask them if they've got a CD player we could borrow luv?"
    "A what?"
    "A CD player"
    "Yes that's right two cheese and pickle sandwitches please, tea for two and my 'husband', yes him in the kilt, is asking if you have a CD player, he is a bit tidly but he's opening our presents and he's holding up some CD's. Sorry about him but if you have got one we'll not play them loud"
    "Have they got one?"
    "They said they'll see"

    So the present was 2 albums of said band and a jar of Ahmed garlic pickle. Him being a Leeds Rd lad he always had a good eye for a good Indian pickle.


    Butties and a little portable radio CD player.

    Anyway you can guess the rest and she definately loved the pickle. I've been a fan since.

    I've not seem my mate since the wedding but I've just text him his tickets for Manchester in October :D

    Jolly Fucker:D

    Anyone seen been to see them on their latest tour?

    Just got back from the Newcastle gig. A bit of a smaller crowd than previous years, but a quality show nonetheless :cool:
