Sleaford Mods Announce New Album 'Spare Ribs', Share First Single Mork n Mindy Feat Billy Nomates

Friday, 30 October 2020 Written by Laura Johnson

Sleaford Mods have announced a new album.

The follow-up to 2019's 'Eton Alive' and this year's 'All That Glue' compilation is called 'Spare Ribs' and will be released on January 15 through Rough Trade. Introducing it online, the British duo said:

"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."

Head below to watch the video for the record's first single, Mork n Mindy featuring Billy Nomates, which finds the latter delivering soulful and spoken word vocals alongside Jason Williamson's trademark gruff tones while Andrew Fearn provides a lo-fi digital musical backdrop.

The clip was directed by Ben Wheatley and produced by Andy Starke. A note accompanying it reads:

"Mork n Mindy is the sound of the central heating and the dying smells of Sunday dinner in a house on an estate in 1982. Concrete, dinted garages, nicotine. Where beauty mainly exists in small cracks on the shell of your imagination."
