Sleaford Mods Announce 'More UK Grim' EP, Share New Single Big Pharma

Wednesday, 20 September 2023 Written by Jon Stickler

Sleaford Mods have announced a new EP.

Slated to arrive on October 20, 'More UK Grim' was recorded at the same time as the duo's latest album, 'UK Grim', released back in March.

The news arrives alongside the lead single, Big Pharma, which lyrically explores conspiracy theories over a thumping bass riff. Jason Williamson, one half of the Nottingham duo, said:

"Big Pharma was written in the opening chapters of autumn 2022 when Covid kicked in again. It carries a lot of the normal Sleaford Mods absurdism but also looks at the ongoing fascination with trying to find truths in information wholly pushed by very questionable people."

"The term 'Big Pharma' has been uprooted from its original place, one that rightly threw critique at the pharmaceutical industry as it produced more and more products that would ruin lives on a mass scale.

"Instead, now, Big Pharma is more familiar as a term used by right-wing and industrial groups trying to mask the financial aims of their arguments with some kind of critical thinking panache-type legitimacy. It just feels wrong. It feeds on hopelessness, widespread fear and generations of unfettered misinformation linked to the limited critical perception we as the masses are burdened with.

“There has to be lots of personal responsibility held to account, too. Recently, Big Pharma has been adopted by the anti-trans movement, so you can see that high-performance bigotry and personal financial interest are never too far away. Much like the next version of the latest smartphone, the features are largely the same.”

The other tracks set to feature on the 'More UK Grim' EP include Under The Rules, Old Nottz, PO Crazeh and My 18hr Girdle. 

Having supported Blur at London's Wembley Stadium in the summer, Sleaford Mods will hit the road for a headline UK and European tour this autumn, which will conclude with a huge London show at Alexandra Palace on December 2.

'More UK Grim' tracklist:

1. Under The Rules
2. Old Nottz
3. Big Pharma
4. PO Crazeh
5. My 18hr Girdle
6. Old Nottz (Alt mix)
