is anyone else loving this band in a mildly perplexed kind of way?
they have been floating around in my radar for months now but due to circumstances beyond my control (ie the reception on R2 is s**t inside the boat) i have been listening to R1 again and was shocked to hear them being played loads and really popular wiv da kids.
they are a folk rock band from london.........easy to find if you google........is folk rock getting trendy and mainstream?  is that a good thing?
please discuss.......

i really like them BTW  Grin

Yep!  

I think I posted about them in Listening To a while back.  

I'm all in favour of singalong songs with swearing in them....highly recommended.

Father Christmas is delivering me the album (apparently all u have to do is ask!)
I have suggested them for Cropredy on a couple of sites but i guess they will be too popular/succesful/ expensive by then.

I don't think popular successful has ever been a bar to appearing at Cropredy. And the likes of Winwood, Holland etc don't exactly come cheap.

I take your point PLW.  Isuppose what i was trying to say that they may be a current popular success  ie radio 1 and 2 plays. I presume they wouldn't be headliners and acts lower down the bill at Cropredy , (even Demon Barbers) get a reduced fee based on the fact they are either getting exposure (eg 4 square) or will sell a lot of CD's (Demons) so Mumfords may be seen by Peggy as too expensive.

On the other hand they might just like to play there. . .lots of people do.

I think Mumford & Sons would probably sell out Cropredy on their own now, and cause a serious security hazard on the day from those without tickets......possibly too popular amongst the 20-somethings for Cropredy?

They're not that big are they?  They are still playing University halls on the next tour (although I know they've sold out 2 nights at the Bush Empire)....

Agree. I've not heard of them, but I have heard of Supergrass, and that wasn't really a security disaster - and they are a far larger draw than Mumford wotsit.

I can see that the Mumfords are gaining a huge following, one friend with little interest in music was asking me what I knew about them so they are getting known, but I think they will play a plethora of festivals next year, including some big 'uns, so wouldn't see a stint at Croppers as a problem.

God preserve us from 20-somethings! In 1979 we were virtually all 20-somethings, and we were a massive security hazard.

i heard um for the first time yesterday....really like them.....they sound like a cross between Fleet Foxes and something else i cant put me finger on.

is it right they are getting big? aint got a problem with that...nice to see a real band playing real instruments with their own songs do well and people are liking them,hopefully those same people will expand their minds and get into this folky pop or whatever style it is more and more.
at least they're not winners of some BS reallity show too..........

Completely agree, Ady - I've been watching them coming through from when they were touring mates with Laura Marling....
