Sleaford Mods - Invisible Britain
Sleaford Mods – Invisible Britain, part band doc, part look at the state of the nation, follows the band on their recent tour of the UK and visits places which probably don’t even exist in the minds of many – the neglected, broken down and boarded up parts of the UK that most would prefer to ignore.
Taking its cue from the likes of Patrick Keiller’s extraordinary Robinson Trilogy, the wanderings of Iain Sinclair, and J.G.Ballard’s comment “The future is just going to be a vast, conforming suburb of the soul”, the documentary is a combination of raw footage of the band, interviews with fans, and a look at what individuals and communities are doing to resist so-called austerity measures.
Sleaford Mods – Invisible Britain aims to tell the story of how the most relevant British band in years stuck two fingers up to the zeitgeist and gave voice to the pent up rage and anger at ineffectual politicians and their neglect of the institutions which underpin civilised society.

About the band
Sleaford Mods, a ranting, raving duo that seem to make sense of something there is no making sense of: a country that’s starting to look like a plastic surgery procedure gone wrong, where the face has been sewn on upside down and back to front, and no one understands what is what any more. Older, wiser and more pissed off by most of the music makers around at the moment – and rightfully disgusted by the betrayal of their peers, who boast about "Champagne in the bath" and tool up and down Hampstead Road in silver Mercs with Kate Moss in the back – Sleaford Mods have chimed with a generation who were promised ‘things can only get better’, only to see things get considerably worse than anyone can imagine.
Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn’s punky, beat-driven tunes have won over audiences and critics alike – and they’ve done it all on their own terms: connecting through the music, and through Williamson’s brilliantly demented, bitingly funny, addictive and unstoppable vitriol.
