5. Austerity Dogs – Sleaford Mods
If ‘Wank’ was a breath of fresh air, Austerity Dogs was a more considered follow-up with clearer targets, more vitriol though less aggressive in tone. Great bass lines, better recorded and edgy, repetitive groove combine to deadly effect. I’m finding this band strangely addictive in the same way Audio Bullys hit the spot with ‘Ego War’ a few years back. A similar two-man band approach. Like the storytelling of The Streets but with added insults, abuse and general bad attitude. I’m in.
