rev. dave: How do you farm posh?


They had to switch to posh after the nerf wool market dried up. THey're still scruffy-looking though.

People in Nova Scotia would comment on what a bunch of dandies Mumford and Sons are. If they knew what the word "dandies" meant. But they don't hold with that high faloutin' stuff.
 
2013-02-08 11:32:59 AM  
I don't think M&S sings about growing up poor.

I'm sure M&S are terribly concerned with what an 18 year old singer-songwriter thinks about them.

Bell's Boy: I'm sure M&S are terribly concerned with what an 18 year old singer-songwriter thinks about them.


They should, his work is influenced by (prepare your tissues) Donovan, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and The Beatles.

and they sound like a wimpier version of Dave Matthews Band.
 
2013-02-08 11:41:49 AM  
Whatever.  I like them, Ive never heard of him.  And if he's pals with a Gallagher, it's just a sign he's a douchenozzle.

My kids lost their sh*t when I said Mumford & Sons were emo bluegrass. I thought daughter Henrietta was going to punch me in the cock.

Humourless kids these days.

I don't mind hearing Mumford & Sons on the radio. I loathe that Jake Bugg song, particularly the first few atonal, affected coffee-house "folk" bars. It's almost a relief when it finally breaks through to the jangly chorus, and then even that begins to grate on the nerves. I usually hit "off" before he finishes saying "I drink to remember".

Also, a "my life sucks so I self-medicate" song at age 18? Yikes.

I just bought tickets for and the Mrs. to see them in St. Augustine in September.  Im not a big musical festival fan and would rather see them at a concert in a "normal" venue but it should be a good show with them and Edward Sharpe.  Spending a weekend in St.  Augustine will be nice as well.  Its one of the more tolerable places in the state of florida.

Well I happen to be a fan of Mumford, and I've never heard of this kid. But hey, he's entitled to his opinion, whatever it may be. I'll just say that seeing Mumford perform at the Hollywood Bowl in November was one of the most incredible nights of my life, and I can't wait to see them live again. They're one of the few acts that actually sound better with less post-production and studio sound.

Can't those Brits figure out "private" vs. "public" schools?

I'm only a casual fan, but I saw them play the Boston Garden this past Tuesday.  While I was a bit skeptical that they could play that large a venue, they did a pretty darn good job (and to a sold-out crowd, too).
 
2013-02-08 01:07:39 PM  
I don't care for M&S, so  I'll have to check this guy out.  Maybe he is talented like Ed Sheeran or Greg Holden.
 
2013-02-08 01:13:20 PM  
Mumford and Sons? *checks article* Yup.

Cyno01: Mumford and Sons? *checks article* Yup.


Exactly what I did.

M&S sound like they don't have any dirt under their nails, but they don't sound like they're trying to fake sincerity either. Just who the kid with the opinion is I don't know.

I'm considering picking up tickets for their stop in Simcoe, ON the end of August on that tour since Old Crow Medicine Show will also be joining them that date along with Edward Sharpe. It's a good 18 hour drive from where I am in Nova Scotia but since OMCS is probably my favourite band, and both Mumford and Sons and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes both make my top 10 it will be worth it.

They dress the part for the style of music they play. Every interview I've seen they come off as pretty laid back, down to earth kind of guys so who cares if they grew up (relatively) privileged. A lot of other musicians playing the same genre of music who did grow up poor seem to like them well enough.

There's a CMT Crossroads episode with Mumford & Sons and Emmylou Harris. It was pretty good and seeing Jerry Douglas performing was a bonus.

Well, authenticity, schmauthenticity. I haven't heard them live, but their studio work seems to lack a bit of passion, happens to a lot of bands in the studio. They might spit fire live, but it didn't get captured on the recording. As for how they dress? I don't really care. It's good that they seem amiable and grounded.

Don't get me wrong, I love Emmylou and all, but I kind of wish they'd  paired them up with Alison Krauss or maybe Patty Loveless. Sort of defeats the crossroads notion, but it's what I'd like to see.

If you haven't watched it check out the documentary The Big Easy Express. It was filmed when Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and Old Crow Medicine Show were doing their Railroad Revival Tour.

One of Bugg's influences, Liam Gallagher, also slammed Mumford & Sons' appearance.  Gallagher thinks they look like they "eat lentil soup with their sleeves rolled up."

Can one of you Limeys explain to me why this is a bad thing?

I just sent a note to a pal in London with the same request. WTF?

His reply: "Got no idea, but Liam is a nutter anyway. As for M&S I feel like I should like these guys. I've tried. I just can't. I really can't stand the racket. Maybe I just need to be a little more drunk in a really dark old bar surrouded by deteriorating soccer paraphenalia tacked to the smoke stained walls. Maybe...naaaah. I just don't like 'em. "

Lentil soup = something poor/country folk eat

sleeves rolled up = laborer class

You might equate it to "they look like they eat turnip stew out of a hubcap," yet they're a bunch of prep school kids.

though he is a crap musician, gallagher does give great quote. one of my faves being when he called mick jagger a "sweaty mushroom" and threatened to "slit his throat with me credit card."

Ah, like Bob Dylan isn't a hobo and Gillian Welch isn't really an Appalachian maiden and Tom Waits isn't a beatnik barfly.  Also, Gene Simmons isn't really a demon.
Therefore, all their music is invalid.
