Here’s how their story goes… Sleaford Mods started out sometime during 2006 whilst Jason Williamson was living in Nottingham. Born out of part frustration and part accident, it quickly found its feet as an aggressive verbal onslaught on all that is contrived and connected to the day-to-day hammer of low paid employment and domestic situations arising from that trap. After a year of working ideas out in both the studio and in live performances, Williamson moved south and took the cause to London and trod the boards there for a couple of years, before returning to Nottingham in 2009.

Soon after that return he met Andrew Fearn and the Sleaford Mods became a duo.  Fearn’s first work was on the production of Wank – the Mods’ fifth CD album. Soon after that he started stalking the stage and studio with Williamson. Andrew’s involvement meant that Jason was now able to stop creating the samples and loops that littered the early recordings and concentrate on the lyrics, whilst Andrew created numerous tunes for Jason to vent his spleen over.

Just after the release of Wank the duo were invited to play a three day festival curated by Nottingham’s Rammel Club. During that weekend a working relationship with Nottingham’s abstract-punk Harbinger Sound label was formed. A relationship which – a year later – resulted in the release of the Austerity Dogs vinyl album. This release would be followed by numerous shows around the UK and Europe, including further festival appearances. As word-of-mouth praise for the album slowly spread out and onto the record-buying publics’ radar, Austerity Dogs soon sold out of its initial run of 300 copies and has gone on to, as of today, a fourth pressing of the vinyl edition as well as a CD version.

“In times of complacency, what we really need is a band to rock up and tell everyone to fuck off.” – NME

“Stream-of-consciousness tirades that conjure up a world of sticky cafe table-tops, grinding hangovers, and the cold comfort of consumerism.” – THE GUARDIAN
