S2 E2: Andrew Fearn

Andrew Fearn, the quieter half of Sleaford Mods, opens up about his vegan journey, compassion for animals and trying to do what he can.

Sleaford Mods have described their work as “electronic munt minimalist punk-hop rants for the working class.” Williamson is responsible for the words, Fearn for the music. Sleaford Mods songs have been described as embittered rants about such topics as unemployment, modern working life, celebrities and pop culture, capitalism, and society in general.

In this conversation, Andrew and Faye discuss topics, such as:

  • austerity and poverty in the UK
  • becoming very famous and what it feels like
  • Andrew’s interest in charities, from Viva! to Shelter
  • the best places for vegan food while touring
  • playing the Sydney Opera House
  • how he tries to use his platform to highlight causes he cares about
