Movie Info

"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 a week? And you turn the telly on and some fucker is spouting on about love", says singer Jason Williamson. Thanks to their sweary rants about modern England, Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods have been called "The Voice of Britain" by their fans, "Britain's angriest band" by the Guardian and "The world's greatest rock 'n' roll band" by Iggy Pop. Jason Williamson, a former chicken factory worker, benefits adviser and father of two, his band mate, beatmaker Andrew Fearn, and their manager Steve Underwood, avant-garde bedroom label owner and former bus driver, have won over fans with their brutally honest lyrics and DIY ethos. Christine Franz's official documentary feature, follows them on their two-year journey from Sherwood to chart success. Bunch of Kunst tells the story of three guys taking on the music business on their own terms.

  • It's impossible not to root for these unexpected rock stars.

  • Christine Franz's film is overlong and, like many music documentaries, slightly overstates the importance of its subject. However, it captures the mundanity of their working-class background [and] the intensity of their live shows.

  • I'm afraid that national treasure status is Jason's whether he wants it or not.

  • This unpretentious rock-doc follows Sleaford Mods through their breakthrough year of 2015, from pub backrooms to Glastonbury and beyond.

    Apr 18, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Bunch of Kunst refuses to do any navel-gazing or indulge in the possibility of anti-star posturing: it's a matter-of-fact documentation of how a few middle-aged blokes finally get some traction and hard-won acclaim.

    Dec 28, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A probing, potent and propulsive celebration for the already acquainted and a lure for the uninitiated.
