Guess who Sleaford Mods are talking about: Shortcummings

Radio13

Sleafords Mods have a new single out called "ShortCummings", from their forthcoming album Spare Ribs, out on Jan 15th on Rough Trade.

The band’s Jason Williamson says “I wrote the lyrics  to  "Shortcummings " in  late  2019  after becoming annoyed by Dominic Cummings increased unelected presence. The arrogance of the privileged generally leads  to  short,  short  short,  short,  short  cummings  in  a  momentary  centre stage  at  the  cost  of untold human misery and exploitation of public money. In the case of Cummings who exactly knows what he lost when he walked out of No10’s front door. It looked staged or given what I suspect is his sense of intellectual  superiority,  perhaps  one  last  show  of bizarre  defiance.  But  there  is  no  defiance when  you come from privileged stock, just pistols at dawn. Posh hamsters going at each other. It’s just so fucking tiresome, as we lumpily coexist, us and the elite. The fortress of control is too strong and indeed there is no denying now, that there is powerlessness in the idea of revolt in this modern day daylight robbery.”
