Spare Ribs – CD

Sleaford Mods


Out of stock

Poised to blow the cobwebs off life and unleash some
much-needed wit and charm upon us, Sleaford Mods
announce the forthcoming release of their astonishing 6th
studio album, entitled ‘Spare Ribs’.
Recorded in lockdown in a furious three-week studio blitz
at JT Soar in July, the polemical Jason Williamson and
dexterous producer Andrew Fearn kick against the pricks
with unrivalled bite, railing against hypocrisy, inequality
and apathy with their inimitable, scabrous sense of
‘Spare Ribs’, featuring Amy Taylor of Melbourne punks
Amyl and the Sniffers and the British newcomer Billy
Nomates, finds the duo charged with ire at the UK government’s sense of entitlement, epitomized by its devil-
may-care approach to the coronavirus crisis.

Commenting on the new album, Jason says, “Our lives are
expendable under most governments, secondary under a
system of monetary rule. We are stock if you like, parts on
a shelf for the purposes of profit, discarded at any moment
if fabricated or non-fabricated crisis threatens productivity.
This is constant, obviously and notably in the current
pandemic. The masses cannot be present in the minds of
ill-fitting leaders, surely? Or else the realisation of their
catastrophic management would cripple their minds. Much
like the human body can still survive without a full set of
ribs we are all ‘spare ribs’, preservation for capitalism,
through ignorance and remote rule, available for parts.”
