Sleaford Mods announce Tiswas EP


The relentless Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods have announced a follow up EP to their widely acclaimed 2014 LP Divide and Exit.

November 24th will see the arrival of highly-anticipated new music from front gob Jason Williamson and music master Andrew Fearn in the shape of Tiswas, their new Invada Records EP. Featuring four brand new studio tracks, alongside ‘Tiswas’, lifted from the Divide And Exit album, It will be released on both yellow and orange Tiswas coloured vinyl and digital download.

Jason Williamson explains the EP, track by track:

‘Tiswas’: “An attack on the waning power of guitar based rock n roll and its short-sighted viewpoint combined with the armchair anarchic lobbyists who fucking point their fingers at the masses like c**ts. I know works shit but I’m not putting my daughter on the street to please you c**s.”

‘The Mail Don’t Fail’: “The dross of right wing media. Easy target I know but one that all the same is getting worse. Good people brainwashed by these c***s. Plus another stab at the slow death which is local government and its banal workings.”

‘6 Horseman (the Brixtons)’: “Part fictional account of misguided drug use to fit a stereotyped image in order to sell records. Also a stab at delusional self-images which always end in tears. The people may tow the line but they will eventually tell you to fuck off if you keep telling them you are Elvis. Also a cheeky stab at the purists who inhabit the gig scene, so informed yet so uninformed.”

‘Bunch of C***s’: “Random observations from a city in 2014. Bunch of Cunts also touches on the distain you can sometimes have for your fellow human beings, the despair in conformity, and the despair of your own place in conformity.”

‘The Demon’: “The nickname for a specific leader of an army currently fighting wherever. The cause or the country or the reasons are of no relevance really. War and its on-going trail of death is an enemy of our existence, regardless of fucking wherever or whoever. F*ck the excuses. It’s a money spinner full of ego and extremely insulting methods of justification. F*ck off demon. F*ck off.”
