Young people are signing major record deals and they just sing about love. I’m a great believer of love. But for fuck’s sake, there’s a lot going on! Who wants to hear that if you are on 15 Pounds a week? And you turn the telly on and some fucker is spitting on about love“, says singer Jason Williamson. Thanks to their sweary rants about modern England, Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods have been called “the angriest band in Britain”. At 44, former chicken factory worker and father of two, Jason Williamson, his band mate, beatmaker Andrew Fearn, and their manager Steve Underwood, a bus driver for Nottingham City Transport and avantgarde bedroom label owner, have won over fans with their brutally honest lyrics and DIY ethos. “Bunch of Kunst” tells the story of three guys taking on the music business on their own terms.
The BFI is funding ‘Transformative Film Culture For Hull', as part of its National Lottery-funded BFI Film Audience Network and led by its lead partner BFI Film Hub North. Delivered through Hull 2017 and by Hull Independent Cinema and a unique partnership of film festival, educational and archive partners from across the north, the film programme will bring a packed programme of more than 400 screenings, one-off events and film festivals throughout the year to Hull and the region. The programme reflects the BFI’s activities across the UK to bring film to audiences where there is less opportunity for them to experience and engage in film, and to support local film networks and audience initiatives. There will be much to explore, celebrate and enjoy.
