Sleaford Mods have released their new album English Tapas via Rough Trade / Remote Control Records. The album was recorded at Steve Mackey’s (Pulp) West Heath Garage studios in London.
Sleaford Mods are aggressive, abrasive, and unabashed in their lyrical support for England’s 99% and in railing against the oligarchs who deny people their basic human and civil rights; with ‘BHS’, they address Green’s treachery and the human costs he ignored. As singer Jason Williamson says about the song:“Buy a company, run it down, take the money, fuck the workers, it’s legal.”
On the origin of English Tapas, Williamson explains: “Andrew walked into some random pub and saw “English Tapas” scrawled on the menu board. Underneath this beautiful coupling of words were it’s components, half a scotch egg, cup of chips, pickle and a mini pork pie” It says everything about this fucking place. It’s comedy, it’s make do, it’s ignorant and above all, it’s shit.”
English Tapas will be released on a limited pressing of red vinyl, CD, DL and very limited edition cassette – 150 only. The tape also includes ‘Sleaford Mods Live at Dismaland 2015’ with a download code of the live show only.
