There are precisely two things we cannot get enough of lately; Amy Taylor (Amyl and the Sniffers) and pointed criticism aimed at parasitic socialites destroying all we have found significant and substantial by their vein tourism. With “Nudge It,” Sleaford Mods combine both with cutting perfection.
“Imagine you’ve got limited options, unsure how you’re getting by that week, looking out the window of the damp flat you don’t want to live in, and seeing a bunch of posers having a photoshoot because ‘cool architecture bro, we feel your pain.’ Reduced circumstance isn’t a pantomime. If you haven’t lived within its confines, don’t use it to enamor your ideas. It confuses the platform for those that truly live it and, more often than not buries creative breakthroughs because the arena is polluted by the view of their world through someone else’s privileged lens. So beware the eager networkers, don’t settle for the 20p payout, nudge it, pop the posers. And don’t apologize for the fucker either.” – Sleaford Mods
