Sleaford Mods share their new video for ‘Moptop’, filmed in a friend’s kitchen, taken from their new album English Tapas, out now via Rough Trade / Remote Control. Watch the clip below.
According to singer Jason Williamson, the song is “based around the disgusting lie that is Boris Johnson, the wannabe Churchill (We don’t need another one). The song also discusses the void that is modern music, internet attention spans, one dimensional acts and the current trend of reformed bands looking to cash in with PR heavy assaults that try to conceal their pointlessness.”
Overnight, Sleaford Mods participated in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), read it here.
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.”
