Sleaford Mods Post New Track Shortcummings

Thursday, 03 December 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Sleaford Mods have unveiled a new track called Shortcummings.

Following Mork n Mindy, the minimal yet catchy song is driven by a punky bassline and finds the duo taking aim at Dominic Cummings, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's former Chief Advisor and a major player in Brexit. Vocalist Jason Williamson said:

"I wrote the lyrics to Shortcummings in late 2019 after becoming annoyed by Dominic Cummings increased unelected presence. The arrogance of the privileged generally leads to short, short, short, short, short cummings in a momentary centre stage at the cost of untold human misery and exploitation of public money. In the case of Cummings who exactly knows what he lost when he walked out of No10's front door. It looked staged or given what I suspect is his sense of intellectual superiority, perhaps one last show of bizarre defiance. But there is no defiance when you come from privileged stock, just pistols at dawn. Posh hamsters going at each other. It’s just so fucking tiresome, as we lumpily coexist, us and the elite. The fortress of control is too strong and indeed there is no denying now, that there is powerlessness in the idea of revolt in this modern day daylight robbery.

"It's not all bad. Andrew's served up a filthy baseline on this, one of his finest, plus I look really fit in the video."

It's the latest preview of the pair's upcoming album, 'Spare Ribs', which is out on January 15 via Rough Trade.
