Sleaford Mods started out sometime during 2006 whilst Jason Williamson was living in Nottingham. Born out of part frustration and part accident, it quickly found its feet as an aggressive verbal onslaught on all that is contrived and connected to the day-to-day hammer of low paid employment and domestic siutations arising from that trap. After a year of working ideas out in both the studio and in live performances, Williamson moved south and took the cause to London for a couple of years and trod the boards there for a couple of years, before returning to Nottingham in 2009.
Soon after that return he met Andrew Fearn and the Sleaford Mods became a duo. Fearn’s first work was on the production of “Wank” – the Mods’ fifth CDr album. Soon after that started stalking the stage and studio with Williamson. Andrew’s involvement meant that Jason was now able to stop creating the samples and loops that littered the early recordings and concentrate on the lyrics, whilst Andrew created numerous tunes for Jason to vent his spleen over.
Just after the release of “Wank” the duo were invited to play a three day festival curated by Nottingham’s Rammel Club. During that weekend a working relationship with Nottingham’s abstract-punk Harbinger Sound label was formed. A relationship which – a year later – resulted in the release of the “Austerity Dogs” vinyl album. This release would be followed by numerous shows around the UK and Europe, including further festival appearances. As word- of-mouth praise for the album slowly spread out and onto the record-buying publics’ radar, “Austerity Dogs” soon sold out of its intial run of 300 copies and has gone one to, as of today, a fourth pressing of the vinyl edition and a CD version was also released. Rave reviews would start to appear in magazines as diverse as The Wire and Uncut, along with interviews being published both on paper and on-line, both here and abroad. The album featured, and topped, many writers polls for the best records of 2013.
With more dates being lined up throughout 2014 the interest in the Mods will continue to spread. Helped by a reputation as a great live band backed with a solid set of releases – including four 7″s released by the likes of Matador and X-Mist amongst others over the last few months – behind them. Not only is the new album “Divide and Exit” due to arrive in April 2014 – in both a vinyl and CD version, but a retrospective 2LP set will be released in Germany during the coming months too. “Divide and Exit” has already won extensive critical praise in the run up to its release date.
The Rogers Sisters
The Rogers Sisters is an American indie rock band from Brooklyn, mostly active from 1999 to 2007. The three members, sisters Laura Rogers and Jennifer Rogers and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Miyuki Furtado, reformed in 2014 for a number of benefits and other special performances.
For a portion of us who buy records and obsess over ‘em, The Gotobeds first came to our attention when word began to spread that Kim Phuc guitarist Eli Kasan and drummer Tom Payne had a new band. That powerhouse pedigree certainly didn’t hurt, but non-residents of Blitzburgh were in for a slight headfuck upon hearing The Gotobeds’ debut 7”, “Ipso Facto (It’s All Happening)” (Mind Cure) in the Fall of 2013. Teamed with bassist Gavin Jensen and drummer Cary Belbeck, the quartet’s chaotic take on smart-dude avant punk could’ve passed for one of the best singles of 1979, ’89, ’99, really, any year that ended in a 9. 1859. 2019.
