It's just bizarre that they're getting so much press.

Hahaha

Here's a few of my favourite tracks anyway...

I think they are a breath of fresh air in all fairness. Not so much music-wise, bc despite being ok/decent, it's somehow new waveish. But, they are definitley getting it right lyrics- and attitudewise. Just by telling it how it is, by refusing to subscribe to the hipocrisy regarding "it's all great let's be happy" mood-totaliarism of late-capitalist society.

Take out half the over-blowing expletives and you've got a good article.

the expletives are part of it Smile
I didn't say they weren't, just if in the contextual position of VICE, which I always heard was a bit of a shit magazine, they stand out and become quasi-ironic comedy.

"Jobseeker" is good in this nature, as it throws up a lot of questions about the questionable attitude of a lot of jobseeker people. It'd be pointless without it.
Like this lyric: "Jobseeker, can of Strongbow I'm a mess, desperately clutching onto a leaflet on depression, supplied to me by the NHS" - the NHS treat depression in most cases, and depression exists in people anyway whatever system they subscribe to. So it's quasi-ironic; I just hope most of their listeners actually see it that way.

I bought that track and "Tweet Tweet Tweet" from the singles collection, the only thing I've checked, for £2 - the rest I found a little tired.
Sleaford Mods and Prodigy collaboration:

According to this newsbit here:

http://www.factmag.com/2014/10/13/the-pr...led-ibiza/

the track, bearing the title "Ibiza", is supposed to be on the forthcoming Prodigy album. Meanwhile, a new Sleaford Mods EP is sheduled for November 2014.

Statto will either a) like it, b)hate it or c) be indifferent Lol

I have to say I like that song...

In any event, it will make Sleaford Mods known outside of music nerd circles Grin
