Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods play their hotly anticipated Boston gig tomorrow night.

The pair are described as a punk-electro outfit and perform rock-based rants in a style reminiscent of The Sex Pistols.

Their song include Tied Up in Nottz and A Little Ditty and often see vocalist Jason Williamson angrily singing about working-class life in the age of austerity.

The pair have been around for some time, but 2014 has seen a meteoric rise to fame in the music scene.

Their songs are not recommended for anyone under the age of 18.

The Guardian newspaper has put their rise to fame down to being ‘among the only artists who seem to accurately reflect the experience of living in Britain in 2014’.

Boston’s own Jimmy May – better known as 50 Sniffs – used his contacts to bring to the duo to Boston.

Speaking to The Standard in December, he said: “They are very hot property right now with NME and the music press absolutely all over them.

“They are the biggest sort of ‘working class’ music act that has broken through massively in years.”

Sleaford Mods will perform an intimate gig at The Carpenters Arms, Witham Street, Boston, tomorrow.

Tickets are £10 and are available from www.skiddle.com
