sleaford mods frontman Jason Williamson took a starring role in the Peaky Blinders finale last night (April 3rd).

The multi-generational Birmingham crime epic finally drew to a close, after six seasons of intrigue, violence, and flatcaps.

The series has always had a heavy music element, with its score becoming a celebrated artefact in its own right.

Lisa O'Neill brought Peaky Blinders to a close with an emotionally resonant Bob Dylan cover, while another musician played a key role in the drama's climactic moments.

sleaford mods' singer Jason Williamson was cast as ranting preacher Lazarus, a move first noted by fans over on Reddit.

His role involved a machine gun and barking dialogue, with the Guardian declaring him to be "perfect" for the role.
