More loud and shouty genius from 2014's sensations, the lairy duo Sleaford Modz. This limited twelve arrives as the aptly titled 'Tiswas' EP, a collection of mostly all new material from Jason Williamson, who opens his mouth once and never closes it, and Andrew Fearn, who lets things tinker away in the background. These tracks were recorded in the studio at the time 'Divide and Exit' was, and now get their own living space and retirement fund. Recommended for you, because you're a Sleaford Mods fan.

8/10 Robin Staff review, 19 November 2014

I can’t believe someone made a reference to 'It’s All Gone Pete Tong' in 2014 but I’m glad it was the Sleaford Mods. If there’s anyone who should be saying it, it’s them -- Jason Williamson is kind of a cynical poet parrot, after all, so everything that’s ever been said slips out after a while. The reference comes half way through the leering “Tiswas”, which focuses on his rambling for its first half before settling into a dinky little synth line and the occasional mumbling of “tiswas! / OTT!”.

These tracks were reportedly recorded around the time of ‘Divide and Exit’ and offer the same sort of irreverent, uncaring energy. “Bunch of Cunts” almost feels like Sleaford Mods satire, Williamson’s hateful people-watching interspersed with a flat-lining beat and chants of “Bunch of cunts! Bunch of cunts! Bunch of cunts!”. Some of the actual one-liners sting hard, but it’s this cold-calling chorus that sticks out. We have memorised it by heart and we’re getting pretty good at the sing along. Elsewhere, one-off lines do the usual snarling rounds -- “No slug / no lettuce / no mates” might be the new No Gods, No Masters.

I’m going to have to stop the review there because I have to go throw my mortarboard up in the air and graduate from Norman Records University -- with my second class degree of Fuckin' Shit Up -- after successfully reviewing a Sleaford Mods release.


10/10 JACOB ROLES Customer review, 4th November 2015

Tiswas - it's like a group of feeling left in the back of your mind that you can only access when under the influence of drugs or alcohol, 'Tiswas' is that re-occurring dream of political aggression and general frustration towards every inch of society. The heavy grimy beat to 'Tiswas' keeps your head bouncing and heart beating as it sinks through your body causing a trance-like state. Jason's vocals break through the sound barrier and are rammed into your mind as you're subdued by this slow steady musical hypnosis. "Pop round mate i'll give you a fiver" - Just reassuring the listener that its real,its everyday life but with a musical tone. 'Tiswas' is like a bed time story told by uncle Pete about how the lonely bear walk through the forest or what not. The video provided (On YouTube) shows Jason and Andrew with blank expressions on their faces in front of a green screen with various videos of society. Their expressions represent the emotion towards these events and how the world is ending up... In a pile of ashes being swept up by Westminster.

The demon feels like a verbal rant expressing life and the people you meet, again reassuring the listener that its not all glammed up and sugar coated.The troubles you face aren't entirely down to other people, sometimes its yourself, it's all in your head. The base is frequent and prominent in The demon, it works well with the symbol like sound that runs throughout, not as impacting as 'Tiswas' more of a tune that's trying to tell you something straight up. This collection of songs are an among snippet of what Sleaford have to offer.

Highly recommend this album, if you haven't listen to Sleaford Mods before (Where have you been? Fiddling about with Kanye West?) then this should be a kick start for you to get involved! A masterpiece in 2015!


9/10 Frank Brown Customer review, 26th November 2014

So here it is at last, the [feels like] long awaited 'Tiswas' EP resplendent with 4 new tracks. I was interested to hear that Mr. Williamson himself didn't initially regard 'Tiswas' as a particularly good track. Instead he was brought round to the idea by Andrew and co.

Tiswas stands up fine on 'Divide and Exit', sort of buried genius amongst [what I regard as] the most 'melodic' [YIKES!] of all Sleaford Mods output to date. So what’s new? Well the accompanying 4 tracks are quite frankly another four-fat-fingers on the bare-knuckled hand that is the Sleaford Mods. Nothing on this EP is meant to be easy listening and once again Williamsons acidic and acutely intense scrutiny lays waste the withering incompetence that is contemporary life and society.

Coming [as I did] from Peckham I especially liked '6 Horseman [the Brixtons]'. The opening line 'Its the 6 horsemen, And they live in south London, They're so outrageous, they've been doing drugs for ages', says just about all you need to know about the south London bullsh*ters scene and sums it all up in perfect symmetry.

'Bunch of C*nts' is just about as bare and stripped down as sonically acceptable. The duos strategy of 'total dismantlement of all aesthetic' is magnificent and relentless. Oddly [perhaps] this EP seems to swing back to the less melodic, more acute 'Austerity Dogs' as opposed to 'Divide and Exit', which could be accused of being almost tuneful. What ever your thoughts, the 'Tiswas' EP is a must for any SM admirer, collector or vinyl junkie. Like the sad bastard I am, I had to buy both the yellow and the orange press of the release. Jeez that is sad. Thank god the music on there is so life affirming and so intelligently augmented against the drag of contemporary Britain and its ruling classes.
