Sleaford Mods Rock the Kitchen in Their ‘Moptop’ Video
Sleaford Mods just released their excellent new album English Tapas. Today, Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn have shared a video for “Moptop,” a highlight off the LP that finds the duo eviscerating the music industry, as well as one of the most prominent conservatives in their native England: “wannabe Churchill” Boris Johnson (whose unkempt “moptop” hairstyle inspired the single’s title). Simon Parfrement directed the straightforward performance clip, which was filmed in a friend’s kitchen. Of course, the Mods can’t help but get political; thus, Fearn takes a dig at right-wing icon Margaret Thatcher by rocking a “Still Hate Thatcher” for the counter-side concert. Watch below.
