Album Review: Sleaford Mods – All That Glue

Posted on 21 May 2020 at 7:59am

Dorian Lynskey’s excellent book 33 Revolutions Per Minute, which catalogues the history of song as a medium for protest, finishes in 2005 with Green Day’s American Idiot.

Around the time it was first published in 2011 you might’ve been forgiven for wondering where the next firebrand was coming from; with the music industry’s new digital economics and the Conservative government’s widespread axing of youth grants as just two contributory factors, by then few could afford to be musicians full time.

This distinct silence whilst the nation was placated with Mumford & Sons’ bourgeois neckerchief phoniness was broken by a duo who came so far from left-field that they at first seemed to be some kind of novelty act. Sleaford Mods presented themselves as the massively unfiltered voice of mid-life full sleeves and late forties coke bumps too many, unofficial spokesmen for a generation that grew up between hoodied slackers on one side and pompous Cruel Britannia fantasists on the other.

Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn understood anger and the performance of it, the former spittle flecking microphones whilst the latter cooked up uber-minimalist crap-hop beats and just pressed play. This compilation – described with typical lack of fuss as the pair’s ‘best bits, b-sides and unreleased fan favourites’ – covers a period in which they rose to prominence on an unlikely ticket, firing shots at the establishment, dead end jobs, self-righteousness and empty culture amongst many things, Williamson moving through various states from despair to apoplexy.
