Track/Video Promo piece
Dead Sheeran: The Fonz – Brilliant lockdown tribute to, or parody of Sleaford Mods.
This is brilliant! Well, if you are a devotee of Sleaford Mods it is. If you hate them… well, take it as a clever parody – which at-the-same-time, says everything which needs saying. And is as funny as fuck.
I know precisely sod-all about Dead Sheeran – a name the tabloids won’t take kindly to, but it’s an attention-grabbing play on the Dead Kennedys (probably) – and not particularly a diss on the harmless/pointless pop-star idiot-bore ginger-whinger.
There are some cracking lines in this and it’s more than just a Jobseeker rip-off. It will be interesting to see what else he comes up with or whether this is a one-off fluke.
‘Dead’, in his own words …
LTW asked Sleaford Mods for comment and they said ‘Fuck Off – Who is this cunt? Plug our new album relentlessly you bastards’ apparently. But I might’ve just made that up.
