Don’t Go While SLEAFORD MODS Cover YAZOO

Daily electricity to load your batteries

18 December 2021

British veteran electro-rap-punk duo SLEAFORD MODS unleashed their
11th LP Spare Ribs at the beginning of this year, gaining a lot of praise
from the press.

To stir up up the festive carols season Jason Williamson and Andrew
Fearn
(member since 2012) play around with dancefloor filler DON’T GO,
the biggest hit of early 80s synth-pop duo Yazoo (featuring Vince Clarke
co-founder of Depeche Mode and powerful soul voice Alison Moyet).

Okay, folks, here we don’t go…

The original cracker…
