The best pop groups want to change the world. They want to leave an imprint that no one forgets, to do more than check out as a minor statistic in the Guinness Book of Hit Singles. They want to change the world of pop, and to engage with the politics of pop. Belle & Sebastian have re-invented the pop festival; they signed to a tiny independent label but still beat Steps to a BRIT, before sweeping into the Top 40, then the Top 20.

TITLE SEQUENCE: Loud upbeat music and credits in Hungarian. A once famous football star flickers across celluloid, a speedy ghost in black and white.

Sleaford Mods started out sometime during 2006 whilst Jason Williamson was living in Nottingham.

After a year of working ideas out in both the studio and in live performances, Williamson moved south and took the cause to London for a couple of years and trod the boards there for a couple of years, before returning to Nottingham in 2009.
