Slaves won’t beef with the Mods

By | Published on Thursday 23 July 2015


Anti-beef of the week goes to punk outfit Slaves, who have refused to rise to the bait after rival band Sleaford Mods called them “fucking appalling”.

Though the Mods then said Slaves had ripped them off, which I think is them admitting that the fucking appalling-ness of the rival duo’s music originates in their own sound? Actually, one of the things Sleaford Mods frontman Jason Williamson accused Slaves of ripping off his “pose” in photos. Which may or may not be fucking appalling.

Anyway, asked about the remarks by the NME, Isaac Holman off of Slaves said: “I’ve got nothing to say about that”. Though he did then say something, that Sleaford Mods are “just trying to stir up shit” and that entering into a public war of words “is hardly sending out a positive message to people”. Which is true, but it might get you into CMU’s ‘and finally’ slot. Though, to be fair, so did saying some tedious consolatory nonsense. So, well done Slaves
