Sleaford Mods Are "Back" With a Brand New Video For "Tiswas"
It features buttloads of images of things from television.
Sleaford Mods are fucking great. For a start, they've released eight albums - which is almost unheard of in an age when most bands can't even get it together to put out an EP before getting pissed off with each other and selling their guitar in exchange for food money. Their songs tie into something: tracks like "Tied Up in Nottz", "Jobseeker", and "Tweet Tweet Tweet" representing the damp hostility collectively felt toward the modern condition:. The group's two members are middle-aged, too - meaning they've got more to say and more life experience than most recently graduated university students gracing the covers of the freebie music monthlys.
"Tiswas" is the group's latest single. Following on from a whirlwind year in which the band have graduated from "two skip rats with a laptop" to two skip rats with a laptop who have appeared in NME and on the radio, it'll appear on a new EP of the same name, released next month.
