Call them minimalist agit-rock, beat-based political punk, or…don’t, but what you can’t call Sleaford Mods is half-arsed. They’re aggressive, abrasive, andunabashed in their lyrical support for England’s working class and in railing againstthe oligarchs who deny people their basic human and civil rights.

Vocalist Jason Williamson shouts against austerity-era Britain’s malaise andstagnation with plenty of profanity, but even more cleverness and wit; and while hislyrics specify conditions in his home country, his anger and call-to-arms can uniteall of us who witness and work under a system that privileges the wealth of the few over the bare comfort, and even the survival, of the just-as-worthy many.

With Andrew Fearn’s deceptively simple beats and melodies underpinning Williamson’s virtuosic vocal performances, this would be a fascinating act, messageor no; but the drive, meaning, and compassion behind their catchy, and even dancefloor-ready tunes make Sleaford Mods as vital politically as they are artistically.
