Following ‘Mork n Mindy‘ their latest single featuring Billy Nomates, Nottingham-based duo Sleaford Mods today release their politically-charged, no holds barred single ‘Shortcummings’ with a premiere from Matt Wilkinson on Apple 1 Music. The song is taken from the upcoming album Spare Ribs out via Rough Trade January 15th 2021.
The band’s Jason Williamson says “I wrote the lyrics to Shortcummings in late 2019 after becoming annoyed by Dominic Cummings increased unelected presence. The arrogance of the privileged generally leads to short, short short, short, short cummings in a momentary centre stage at the cost of untold human misery and exploitation of public money. In the case of Cummings who exactly knows what he lost when he walked out of No10’s front door. It looked staged or given what I suspect is his sense of intellectual superiority, perhaps one last show of bizarre defiance. But there is no defiance when you come from privileged stock, just pistols at dawn. Posh hamsters going at each other. It’s just so fucking tiresome, as we lumpily coexist, us and the elite. The fortress of control is too strong and indeed there is no denying now, that there is powerlessness in the idea of revolt in this modern day daylight robbery.”
