    The Boy danny la rouge is probably wrong.

    Saw them again last night. Good gig. Was a bit of a broader mix in the crowd than last time I saw them, too.

    Yeah I thought they were a bit tame too compared to usual but still good to see them on there, purely for pissing off twitter wankers :).

    Look at the image on the top, they really don't seem to appeal to women going by that.



    btw, their spat with Ian McNabb is hotting up, complex guy, but not very likeable.

    McNabb's career has been going badly, he needed the controversy to get his name mentioned somewhere, anywhere.

    I've listened to it. As I say, don't like it, but totally get it and think it's a good thing. I'd buy the lyrics in a book.

    I'm not prepared to accept someone disliking it.

    me sister bought it for a mate, who liked the idea of the Mods, but not the actuality. So she thought she'd like to just read the lyrics.

    Then went 'fuck it' and kept it herself

    Dunno if this has been posted but thought I'd share. He seems to have stopped now but reading these pieces Jason wrote for vice have been brilliant. He's a superb writer, which I guess we all know but to read his writing in a column really brings home just how thoughtful, observant and bloody funny he is:

    What image? The crowd? I saw plenty of women at the Bristol gig.

    I was a woman at the Cardiff gig, and I wasn't alone :facepalm: The nature of gigs is there's often a preponderance of men at the front, which is why I don't bother about getting near the front.

  19. The Boy

    My other half felt a bit out of place when we went to see them last year - enough that she didn't tag along the other week, even though there was a ticket going spare. Can't say I noticed it being *that* bad although deffo a bit more blokey than usual.

    That said, I think I count 6 women in the front few rows of the pic in the link up there. That can't be *that* unusual for the front few rows at many gigs, can it? I'm old so tend to avoid the front so couldn't really comment.

    neonwilderness What would Badgers do?

    Just spotted this on Youtube which is a bit better than No One's Bothered. I can't remember seeing it when I skipped through the episode on iplayer, so I wonder if it was cut or whether I just missed it? :hmm:

    That song was only played on the friday one and not the wednesday one so that mayy have been why you missed it.

    Ah, that would probably explain it!

    I was under the impression that this was the first Sleaford Mods track? Either way yours is a good post :cool:

    I was just going off their description. Either way it's interesting to see how their style has changed compared to the more recent stuff :cool:

    Actually I think they were called 'That's Shit Try Harder' for the track I posted, it was when Jason first discovered his style worked over a single loop and it was just him and samples. Perhaps your link is the first track as Sleaford Mods and moving in the direction of their style today but yeah interesting hearing how the style has developed. Long live Sleaford Mods! :D

    I'm sure I read some interview where Jason seemed to be confessing to past misogynistic lyrics and saying that his wife clued him up about that shit. So I'm always a bit afraid of what I might hear with their early stuff. In the case of that Ashtray track perhaps there is a hint of this with the line "she's too rough".

    if you think that's what he was talkng about....

    Too late for me to watch that tonight but I will try tomorrow. I assume he was talking about way worse than the line I mentioned, which was only just enough to jog my memory as to the interview and my fears.
