Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods make their highly anticipated debut appearance in the grand duchy on Saturday.
Mixing high octane electro punk with hip-hop, Sleaford Mods had bene going as an entity for some time before exploding into the public consciousness with their “Wank” album in 2012. A string of acclaimed albums and mesmerising live performances followed, with the likes of 2013’s “Austerity Dogs”, 2015’s “Key Markets” making into several best of the year lists.
Frontman Jason Williamson spits his angry, witty and highly quotable politically charged lyrics over melodies and beats laid down by multi-instrumentalist and DJ Andrew Fearn. The band describe their music as “electronic munt minimalist punk-hop rants for the working class.” Last year’s “English Tapas” album was described as a “bruising, brilliant post-Brexit tirade.” So, this gig could be the most incendiary of the year in Luxembourg.
Support comes from Swiss all-female quartet Massicot.
