New album announced for March featuring Perry Farrell and David Navarro of Jane’s Addiction and Dry Cleaning’s Florence Shaw
In a perfect collision of scabrous contemporary commentary, the title track of Sleaford Mods’ forthcoming album ‘UK Grim’ pairs the duo’s minimalist electronic brutalism and poetics with a video from Cold War Steve, the digital collage artist whose barbed political satire regularly sets Twitter alight.
“Maybe we are proud of the country. Maybe we are proud to be English,” explains the band’s Jason Williamson. “Maybe I’m proud of the horrible grey streets and the shit weather and the stupid fashions I find myself investing in. It’s just that the English we’re proud of being is absolutely nothing like the English the authorities want to try and promote.”
‘UK Grim’, is due for release 10 March through Rough Trade. The vinyl will come in three flavours, black and white versions on the Sleaford Mods’ webstore, and a silver pressing available through indie shops.
