SLEAFORD MODS & AMY TAYLOR – Nudge It (live)

If the legends are true, the first ever Sleaford Mods gig took place at a cafe near Nottingham Station in 2007. An apt place for Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn to start their journey – one that has taken them around the world physically, to new places sonically and through the strangest times lyrically – but they have never lost their connection with home. Hence late in 2021 a “guy shouting and a bloke with a laptop” staged one of the first big post pandemic gigs at the Nottingham Arena. It was a night to celebrate and a night for old friends, but also a time to aim for new horizons and start a new chapter.

Documenting how far one of Britain’s most original bands have come, while revealing Williamson and Fearn straining forward creatively, these recordings also demonstrate what Sleaford Mods do better than anyone else: they make a connection. Whether it is a cafe or an arena, Sleaford Mods engage and entertain and this EP captures the duo’s biggest and best live performance… so far.

I’ve been out playing to this mindless abandon
This ropey idea about love and connection
Just stuck on silly ideas ‘cause it’s all you can cook
You fucking class tourist, you mixed your social groups up

It’s like you all stick together, a stronger edition
The non-creatives un-impact, she got no invention
Just stuck on silly ideas ‘cause it’s all you can cook
This kitchen’s lookin’ sketch, you mixed your chopping boards up

Nudge it
You’re just a mind that’s spraying and praying on walls
And the after effects are making my skin crawl
You’re just a mind that’s saying and playing so dull
And the after effects are making my skin crawl

I’ve been hard choked into a pool of inaction
It’s all commercial gain to point the seeds of destruction
It’s all a tired meeting in the emerald board
Ticking boxes with the subject for political score
The kudos makes it float on top where it stays
And the sequence of not being that close to his face
And just stuck on silly ideas ‘cause it’s all you can do
Your car ain’t got no brakes, it’s just laughing at you

Nudge it
You’re just a mind that’s spraying and praying on walls
And the after effects are making my skin crawl
You’re just a mind that’s saying and playing so dull
And the after effects are making my skin crawl

I can drop a lyric with no need to drop a name
I do it for the pleasure, the money and the fame
You saying that you love it, I’m saying that you’re lying
I’ve been putting in the work but you’re barely even trying

Stood outside an high rise trying to act like a gangster
Stood outside an high rise trying to act like a gangster
Stood outside an high rise trying to act like a gangster
Stood outside an high rise

You’re just a mind that’s spraying and praying on walls
And the after effects are making my skin crawl
You’re just a mind that’s saying and playing so dull
And the after effects are making my skin crawl

You’re just a mind that’s spraying and praying on walls
And the after effects are making my skin crawl
You’re just a mind that’s saying and playing so dull
And the after effects are making my skin crawl
