Sleaford Mods have shared the official video for "Moptop", taken from their new album 'English Tapas' which came out on Friday and is available to buy/stream here. The video was shot in their friends' band The Kens' kitchen by director Simon Parfrement. Frontman Jason Williamson explains that the song isbased around the disgusting lie that is Boris Johnson, the wannabe Churchill (we don’t need another one). The song also discusses the void that is modern music, internet attention spans, one dimensional acts and the current trend of reformed bands looking to cash in with PR heavy assaults that try to conceal their pointlessness.”

At 7pm UK time tonight (6th March), Jason will be answering all your questions in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything). Submit your questions here.

The album was recorded in London at Steve Mackey’s (Pulp) West Heath Garage studios. Of ‘English Tapas’, frontman Jason Williamson explains: 'Andrew walked into some random pub and saw "English Tapas" scrawled on the menu board. Underneath this beautiful coupling of words were its components: 'Half a scotch egg, cup of chips, pickle and a mini pork pie'. It says everything about this fucking place. It's comedy, it’s make do, it's ignorant and above all, it's shit".
