Sleaford Mods have said that Noel Gallagher has "blood on his hands" when it comes to the creative output of British bands.

The Nottingham two piece speak in this week's NME, which is on newsstands now and available digitally, about their background and influences.

Stating that their name is not meant to be ironic, frontman Jason Williamson of the Nottingham based rap duo, confirms that he grew up as a Mod but turned away when the scene became too retro for him. "Creatively speaking, Noel Gallagher's got blood on his hands." Elsewhere, Williamson decries the lack of politically outspoken music in 2014, saying; "Ever since Thatcher got in and cut everything to the bone, it should have been protest music all the way."

Sleaford Mods new album 'Divide and Exit' is released on April 28. Scroll down to watch the pair perform 'Fizzy' and 'Tiswas' exclusively for NME in their living room now.
