Sleaford Mods — Key Markets (July 24th, 2015)

Sleaford Mods — Key Markets (July 24th, 2015)

    Sleaford Mods — Key Markets (July 24th, 2015)Sleaford Mods — Key Markets (July 24th, 2015)Ξ•  Textově i hlasově zajímavější než The Streets Mike Skinnera. Album bylo nahráno v různých obdobích mezi létem 2014 do října téhož roku. Pracovali jsme rychleji než podle zavedených zvyklostí, způsob byl však stejný jako u ostatních alb a stejně jako na následujících dvou, zvukově přirozený a v pocitovém pohybu. "Tarantula Deadly Cargo" je místy poměrně abstraktní, ale stále se to zabývá těžkou dezorientací moderní existence. To je umocněno dotekem útoku na lidskou čest, principem klamu o vznešenosti mocných a neuchopitelností vládní politiky. Je to klasika.
Ξ•  The Nottingham duo are on belligerent form as they put the boot into Ed Milliband, Nick Clegg and Lauren Laverne
Ξ•  There was a notable absence on the BBC Sound of 2015, the corporation’s January list of the artists it will support in the coming year. Sleaford Mods didn’t find themselves in the company of the wishy–washy keyboard trio Years & Years or the heartfelt balladeer James Bay, and perhaps it’s not surprising. A middle–aged man shouting sweary rants while his friend hits the space bar on a laptop to set off a rhythmic loop before puffing on an e–cigarette? It isn’t the most commercial proposition.Location: Saxilby, Grantham, Lincolnshire ~~ Nottingham, England, UK

Ξ•  Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods are due to release their third 'proper' album on July 10th via abstract–punk label Harbinger Sound on vinyl, CD and download. The album will be housed in a gatefold sleeve designed by Steve Lippert and was mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy. Everything else was done by Sleaford Mods. 'Key Markets was a large supermarket bang in the centre of Grantham from the early 1970's up until around 1980,' explains Jason Williamson. 'My mum would take me there and I'd always have a large coke in a plastic orange cup surrounded by varnished wood trimmings and big lamp shades with flowers on them. Beige bricks with bright yellow points of sale and large black foam letters surrounded you and this is why we called the album 'Key Markets'. It's the continuation of the day to day and how we see it, the un–incredible landscape.'  © a blast of British street life..., GLASGOW, UNITED KINGDOM — NOVEMBER 06: Andrew Fearn and Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods performs on stage at Oran Mor on November 6, 2014 in Glasgow, United Kingdom. (Photo by Ross Gilmore/Redferns via Getty Images)'The album was recorded in various periods between summer 2014 through to October of that year. We worked fast as we normally do, the method was the same as the other albums and like the other two, the sound has naturally moved itself along. 'Key Markets' is in places quite abstract but it still deals heavily with the disorientation of modern existence. It still touches on character assassination, the delusion of grandeur and the pointlessness of government politics. It's a classic. Fucck em.'

By Douglas Wolk; July 10, 2015;  Score: 7.5
Ξ•  Jason Williamson's speaking voice is gloriously bilious: hoarse with fury, spraying plosives everywhere, turning up the kinked corners of his East Midlands accent as far as they'll go, cramming syllables into every line because nobody's going to fooken shut him up, mate. It's the cornerstone of Sleaford Mods' sound, underscored by double–tracking on crucial phrases; the music behind it is loops made by Andrew Fearn, the other half of the band, mostly from blunt basement–rock bass and drums. (On stage, the two of them are a delightful contrast: Williamson burning–eyed and venting, Fearn hanging back with a beer in his hand, bobbing his head and not even pretending to do more than press the start button at the beginning of each song.)
Ξ•  Williamson and Fearn are both weary–looking white guys in their mid–forties, and they've been kicking around the music world long enough to not have an iota of idealism about it. The title of Key Markets — something between Sleaford Mods' third album and their ninth, depending on how you count — refers to a '70s–era supermarket, but it's also a canny reference to the way the band has been clawing its way up in the British music scene. It's been less than a year since Williamson was able to quit his day job as a "benefits adviser," which provided the raw material for both their best–known older song, "Jobseeker", and the new album's "Face to Faces": “Free money, mate, just fill in the form and if you can't then I can 'elp ya.”
Ξ•  The state of a working class that politics have kicked in the face over and over is the central subject of Williamson's topical, allusive, syllable–drunk lyrics. His mocking rants spool out like bog roll yanked by a cat, occasionally rhyming, miraculously snapping into sync with Fearn's beats. “Miliband got hit with the ugly stick, not that it matters/ The chirping cunt obviously wants the country in tatters,” Williamson spits on "In Quiet Streets"; it's not quite Eminem–caliber for either invective or internal rhyme, and it arrives two months after Ed Miliband resigned as Leader of the Labour Party, but it'll do. (Likewise, you need to have a fairly deep knowledge of both British politics and Britpop to parse a couplet from "Rupert Trousers": "Idiots visit submerged villages in 200–pound wellies, spitting out fine cheese made by that tool from Blur/ Even the drummer’s a fuckin' MP: fuck off, you cunt, sir.")
Ξ•  Sometimes Williamson sings, after a fashion, which is where Key Markets gets weird, in much the same way that early Fall records got weird when Mark E. Smith tried to carry a tune. (The creepily catchy "Tarantula Deadly Cargo", which may or may not be a scatological joke, would fit right in on the Fall's Dragnet, especially Fearn's asthmatic guitar plinks.) "No One's Bothered" is another sung one, the closest thing here to the form of the '70s punk that's deeply embedded in Sleaford Mods' art, and it's built on a smart trick from Fearn. His rhythm track is a three–minute extension of a punk song's bolting bass–and–drums intro, a loop of the few seconds before the guitar inevitably dives in — which it never does here. "You're trapped? Me too," Williamson snaps. "Alienation? No one's bothered." The punk rock on which Williamson and Fearn grew up promised a lot of catharses that weren't actually forthcoming, so they don't even hint at those. But they've adopted its raw elements — crudity, spittle, black humor and unpretty voices — as durable tools to express discontent. Ξ•  http://pitchfork.com/

ABOUT
Ξ•  Williamson (born 1970 in Grantham, Lincolnshire) grew up in Grantham. Citing influences including mod subculture, Guns N' Roses, rave, black metal and Wu–Tang Clan, he previously fronted the electronic band Unity Crescent whilst also regularly performing as a solo singer–songwriter. He had also worked as a session musician with local artists as well as Spiritualized and Bent.
Ξ•  Sleaford Mods began when Williamson's friend suggested that he combine his vocals with a music sample from a Roni Size album. Originally the project was called "That's Shit, Try Harder", later changed in reference to Sleaford, a town in Lincolnshire not far from Grantham.
Ξ•  Williamson formed the band with Simon Parfrement, who he worked with alongside a studio engineer at Rubber Biscuit Studio in Nottingham on their first four albums. Parfrement left the music production to Andrew Fearn after the release of the 2012 album Wank, the first album to feature Andrew Fearn, but continues to play an important role in the band as their photographer and media producer.
Ξ•  Fearn (born 1971 in Burton upon Trent) grew up on a farm in Saxilby, Lincolnshire. He was recruited by Willamson after he heard him play at The Chameleon Arts Cafe in Nottingham
