Mr. Jolly Fucker
Sleaford Mods started around 2006 in Nottingham by Jason Williamson.
Born out of frustration and by accident, it quickly found its feet as an aggressive attack on all that is contrived and connected to the day-to-day hammer of low paid employment. After a year in the studio and gigs around Nottingham, Jason then took the cause to London for a period and eventually back to Nottingham in 2009 where he met Andrew Fearn, who became nvolved with the production of the 5th album, Wank. He also became the second member. On Wank's release, Jason and Andrew were offered a slot on the bill of The Rammel Club's 3 day festival which introduced Jason to the Noise scene, so to speak, and also to Steve Underwood from the punk label, Harbinger Sound. A year later Harbinger Sound released Sleaford Mods first vinyl album, Austerity Dogs, and it immediately took off with a string of gigs in Europe and major cities in the UK along with side articles in leading music magazines The Wire, Fact and Vice as well as countless fanzines. The second album from Harbinger sound is due to be released later this year and also two 7" releases from Fourth Dimension Records and Kraak's home label are due in the meantime. Tours to promote these are currently underway with more planned. ‘Mr. Jolly Fucker’ b/w ‘Tweet Tweet Tweet’ sees the duo continuing their sometimes raucous yet always edgy melding of mean hip-hop beats, often savage poetic observations (think whizzed-out Mark E, Smith) and snarling punk attitude. A full-on kick to the senses inspired by the Sex Pistols, The Last Poets and ‘60s garage and soul music.
