“Young people are signing major record deals and they just sing about love. I’m a great believer of love. But for fuck’s sake, there’s a lot going on! Who wants to hear that if you are on fifteen pounds a week? And you turn the telly on and some fucker is spouting about love“, says singer Jason Williamson. Thanks to their sweary rants about modern England, Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods have been called “the voice of Britain” by their fans, “Britain’s angriest band” by the Guardian and “The world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band” by Iggy Pop. Jason Williamson, a former chicken factory worker and father of two, his band mate, beatmaker Andrew Fearn, and their manager Steve Underwood, bus driver and avant-garde bedroom label owner, have won over fans with their brutally honest lyrics and DIY ethos. Following them on their two-year journey from bedroom recording sessions to chart success, Christine Franz’s official documentary feature tells the story of three guys taking on the music business on their own terms.
