Like most overnight sensations, Nottingham rage-punk duo Sleaford Mods had been slaving in obscurity for years before their big break finally came. This pleasingly unpretentious rock-doc follows the pair through their breakthrough year of 2015, from touring the pub backrooms of northern England to the Glastonbury Festival and beyond. Poet Jason Williamson and noisemaker Andrew Fearn come off – unsurprisingly – as articulate, bolshy and fiercely class-conscious, playing the ordinary-blokes-who-blundered-into-stardom card at every conceivable opportunity. It’s particularly bizarre to see European audiences – notably the Germans – bellowing back the band’s bitter lyrics about job centre managers and corner off-licences. Sleaford Mods’ music may not be to all tastes, but as documentary evidence that good things can still happen to committed, hardworking people, BUNCH OF KUNST is very pleasing. (Tom Huddleston)
