A film About Sleaford Mods
Thu 01 Jan 1970
Dir. Christien Franz. Germany, 103 mins, 2017.
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 worlds 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 Franzs official documentary feature tells the story of three guys taking on the music business on their own terms.
‘Genius … Every young band and every music college should be forced to show this film just to underline the genuine power of music and creativity.’
LOUDER THAN WAR
‘Just like the Sleafords themselves, Christine Franz’s film is unpretentious and unfiltered, and it brilliantly captures the momentum and excitement of a band as they make their breakthrough.’ ????
‘It is impossible not to root for these unexpected rock stars’
LITTLE WHITE LIES
‘Excellent … Rips Austerity Britain a fresh one’ ????
