- Mr. Jolly Fucker / Tweet Tweet Tweet by Sleaford Mods
9/10 Ian Staff review, 16 January 2014
As you may know, Nottingham’s finest Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn aka Sleaford Mods have been creating a bit of a stir here at Norman HQ recently, it’s safe to say that these lads are definitely Marmite.
This is a double A-side of two tracks that don’t feature on their ‘Austerity Dogs’ album so if you’re a fan this is definitely worth picking up. On ‘Mr Jolly Fucker’ Jason Williamson gets straight in there with his spew of urban poetry, it’s hard to say exactly what it all means but it seems to make some kind of crazy sense in a Mark E Smith stream of consciousness kind of way.
‘Tweet Tweet Tweet’ has all the punk grit of early Specials with a great bass line and Jason leering “When I walk back from the train, with a Stella kickin in my brain”, you’ve just gotta love this!
10/10 Frank Brown Customer review, 27th November 2014
Yup, it had to happen I suppose, I capitulated [from ever giving a 10/10 to anything] and the Sleaford Mods have forced me into this position. The horrible truth is I am a 46-year-old fan..... Jeez it’s embarrassing to even say it but there it is. Truth is, British 40-something-year olds seem to have been utterly entranced by these boys. Loved by G2 and generally regarded as the legitimate working class voice of Thatcher's children. [Did you know that British 20-somethings are positioned to sell off the NHS, cut working tax benefits for the unemployed and low earners of this country, and slash the current pensions provision?]...
Anyway, here we have it, 'Tweet Tweet Tweet B/W Jolly Fucker', now then; TTT is probably one of my all time favourite SM tunes. Why? dunno really, seems to me that there is an extra strata of musical ambition in this tune. Perhaps it’s that cracking harmony loop from Fearn, or the decidedly close to the knuckle lyric with the hook "Chopped heads on London streets, All you zombies Tweet Tweet Tweet". As a die hard non facebooking tweeter I respond to the idea that all this intersh*t connectivity really is stripping the UKs youth clean of all face to face social skills instead rendering us a bunch of tweeting zombies...oh yeh, I’d buy that.
Back to the record. I see it’s already out of print pretty much. Like the collector bell-end I am, I went to great length to buy this on burgundy vinyl as well as the flat black standard......here we go again, multiple format release to really excite the vinyl nerds and rob them [me] if all that cash I never had. Truth is I love it and will come back for more. If you can't spend all your money on a band as good as this then you might as well stop buying records all together and start listening to the Flabby White Family instead. If you want your music spoon-fed do not buy this record. If you want your vote to count and your conscience to be clear. Buy every record you can from the Sleaford Mods and start with this one.
10/10 Lewis Customer review, 11th June 2014
Cool as Fuck!! Blew my mind some of the most straight up lyrics i've heard in years.
9/10 Gabor Customer review, 11th February 2014
It is proper good stuff, makes my neighbours angry and makes me jump around. I'm just a little mad I didn't wait for the re-press as it is on clear/white vinyl (mine is black), but the music is great so...in the end it's all good. Mahalo!
10/10 Fluff.zzz Customer review, 5th February 2014
Don't you just love it when the "b" side is as good as the A? A side Mr Jolly Fucker cuts a pounding, bouncing sequencer produced mayhem with swears a plenty. Slap it on your mp3 just before you drag your sen into yet another Monday morning staff meeting, it'll change your day. B side Tweet Tweet Tweet slices a lump from the same electro punk pie but has a more analogue feel, a more "band" sound. Happily Sleaford Mods have a story to tell and venomous hate for all those zombies walking around with their snouts pushed into their smartphones.
10/10 Paul Poggit Customer review, 19th January 2014Give me a nudge if this is repressed please. Travelled a few miles to see this excellent ensemble in Nottingham last night. I think that's a belter for a bloke fast approaching 50. Positive Approach My lineage is Undertones > Black Flag >Pale Saints > Polvo > Sleaford Mods Sincere regards
