Cold War Steve has taken aim at Nadine Dorries, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Piers Morgan, Jeremy Clarkson and Nigel Farage in a scathing new video for Sleaford Mods.
The video for UK GRIM, the title track from the Nottingham duo’s new album, is directed by the post-Brexit collage provocateur and pokes fun at tropes of dispiriting Britishness such as the jeans and sheux beloved by rugby fans, and Eton College.
“Maybe we are proud of the country. Maybe we are proud to be English,” said vocalist Jason Williamson, explaining the track as an attack on ruling classes and a celebration of individuals and idealists.
“Maybe I’m proud of the horrible grey streets and the shit weather and the stupid fashions I find myself investing in. It’s just that the English we’re proud of being is absolutely nothing like the English the authorities want to try and promote.”
