SLEAFORD MODS TAKE TOTAL CONTROL!
Everybody’s favourite East Midlanders, SLEAFORD MODS have revealed a video for the title track of their new EP.
The five-track TCR EP is their first release for Rough Trade and is set to hit the streets on 14 October. It’s available to pre-order here.
The EP’s title track is inspired by the 80s car-racing set Total Control Racing. Says the Mods’ Jason Williamson, “The idea behind the TCR video was to show and use the actual 1980’s toy racing kit in its original environment which would of most probably been the living room floor for most kids at that time It’s a pretty crap device and I thought it married perfectly to the idea of life’s (at times) rotating dross. The narration/vocal over the song is just that, an account of a bloke reacting to what he feels is a routine laden existence by ‘escaping’ for the night to the pub only to realize this is also a limited experience and in turn all options kind of merge into a circular experience of never ending repetition that he tries to navigate.”
