Sleaford Mods Vinyl, CD & tapes from Norman Records

Reliably sweary, Sleaford Mods aren't actually Mods at all - despite vocalist Jason Williamson's love of sharp dressing - but, rather, a bastard take on English punk that brings minimalist electronics and American hip-hop influences to the table. It's abrasive, confrontational, highly politicised and highly original. Garnering critical praise for years now (including our own Album of the Year accolade in 2013 for 'Austerity Dogs'), Sleaford Mods have moved from the grottiest pubs of the UK music scene to being a very big deal indeed. And despite the snarls, lovely fellas they are too.

Similar to Sleaford Mods:

Sleaford Mods
Bunch Of Kunst Documentary / Live at SO36

Even if you don’t much care for the music of Sleaford Mods, you have to say that they’ve been a refreshing and valuable voice in the increasingly homogenised world of mainstream rock over the past few years. This two-disc set - the ...view item »

Sleaford Mods
Austerity Dogs

Months ago, back when I first started seeing this album on this site, I had it judged by its cover, title and band name. "Brilliant," I thought, "more wannabe 'Mod' twats selling that line about how important it is in working class culture to wear a sharp coat." Fully expecting it to contain the latest forgettable rehash of crappy Mod nostalgia,...view item »

Chubbed Up +

What a year it has been for Sleaford Mods. Twelve months ago half of this office were up in arms at Phil's decision to award 'Austerity Dogs' album of the year. Yet (and it pains me to say this) he was right. The thing about Sleaford Mods is that this is something new and fresh and angry which spits in the face of the shit pumped at us d...view item »

Sleaford Mods / Sudden Infant
You're Brave / Fat Nipple Uptight

Hey look: it's a Sleaford Mods thing. We're all pretty excited to drop the beat and then get our Swear Circle going, which is kinda like a drum circle except without snares and with a lot of variations on the word "fucker". This particular 7" sees "You're Brave" paired with a tune by Joke Lanz's project Sudden Infant, who offers up "Fat Nipple U...view item »

Sleaford Mods
The Mekon

Got them off the back of a lorry mate. Unofficial re-press of this early classic which features lots of inventive sampling and a wordy, sweary delivery. Sound familiar? It should be as some of these songs are a bit good you know. Word is you'll be paying top notch if you try to get one on Discogs......view item »

Sleaford Mods
S.P.E.C.T.R.E.

An unofficial re-issue of the early work of this at the time yet to be heralded group from the flatlands of Eastern England. You'll be paying upward of £75 for a copy of this on Discogs which is somewhat remarkable seeing as though we haven't heard of them. Lots of inventive ranting though, as you'd expect from the wilds of Lincolnshire.&n...view item »

Sleaford Mods
English Tapas

Being the miserable sods that we are here at the towers, with every new Sleaford Mods album the only office concern seems to be when will their bubble burst? Well it's not going to happen any time soon. Initially I wasn't massively enamoured with last years 'TCR' single but then I realised I loved all the B sides..... much to my annoyance actual...view item »

Sleaford Mods
Live at SO36

Ah, a live album from Sleaford Mods - a great excuse to hear the word ‘fuck’ uttered 200 times but this time with a bit of reverb and crowd noises more rabid than Jason Williamson’s onstage glare. But that’s ultimately what a SM live album is missing though: Williamson’s incredible confrontational sneer slowly scann...view item »

Sleaford Mods
Divide And Exit

Regular customers of Norman Records will know all about Sleaford Mods already. Due in no small part to a tireless work ethic (kudos to band and label!) large swathes of the UK and beyond now seem to be catching on, to the point where 'Divide And Exit' feels really quite zeitgeist-y. ...view item »

Sleaford Mods
T.C.R

Like whatever it is that unblocks sinks, Sleaford Mods are pretty reliable. You purchase the records and you know what you are going to get.  This is generally a good thing though I thought 'Tarantula Deadly Cargo' was the best thing they'd done in recent times and more eerie stuff like that on 'Key Markets' may have made it a bit m...view item »

Sleaford Mods
Key Markets

Well of course we like it. But let’s talk about it. Sleaford Mods have actually been making records for years now, like the prolific crossover between a crusty band doing 7” splits, a rapper throwing archives onto DatPiff and, you know, the Fall. They have a good half dozen full le...view item »
