Sleaford Mods share “Nudge It” ft Amyl & the Sniffers’ Amy Taylor (new LP out this week)
Sleaford Mods' anticipated new album Spare Ribs is out this Friday and they've just shared one more advance single before the whole thing drops. On "Nudge It" Jason Williamson rails against "class tourists" over Andrew Fearn's beat that throws in a little post-punk-style angular guitar. Amy Taylor of Amyl and the Sniffers drops in for a verse and fits right in with the Mods universe.
“Imagine you’ve got limited options, unsure how you’re getting by that week, looking out the window of the damp flat you don’t want to live in, and seeing a bunch of posers having a photo shoot because ‘cool architecture bro, we feel your pain’" says Williamson. "Reduced circumstance isn’t a pantomime. If you haven’t lived within its confines don’t use it to enamour your ideas. It confuses the platform for those that truly live it and more often than not buries creative breakthroughs because the arena is polluted by the view of their world through someone else’s privileged lens. So beware the eager networkers, don’t settle for the 20p pay-out, nudge it, pop the posers. And don’t apologise for the fucker either.”
