Thread Name: Mumford & Sons at the Brits Awards
Subject: RE: Mumford & Sons at the Brits Awards
"I've really tried to like Mum and sons etc....Just don't get it."
Someone once described Coldplay as 'Pink Floyd with all the interesting bits taken out' - well to these ears Mumford & Sons are a homogenised dumbed-down passionless teen-friendly version of Coldplay.
Dull, dull dull.
A couple of tunes featuring banjo don't make them a folk band; and if they don't want their tedious navel-gazing public-school-common-room-rock twaddle to be associated with the folk scene, then all the better for us I say!
