Jake Bugg Calls Mumford And Sons “Posh Farmers With Banjos”

February 8, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

In an interview with The Guardian, Jake Bugg gave his thoughts on Mumford and Sons, saying they look like “posh farmers with banjos”. Here are highlights:

On Mumford and Sons: “They just look like posh farmers with banjos to me … but I don’t have anything against anyone’s background.”

On if rock music has ignored the working class: “Yeah, it’s a shame, because times are hard. My mum was a single mum on the dole … a couple of years ago I was trying to get enough together for a pack of fags. It’s hard to rely on being a musician right now, but you have to do what it takes.”

On his scariest gig: “The scariest gig I ever did, though, was at school. I got put in isolation, and the only way I could get out was if I did the school concert. You’re stood up in front of people you’re gonna see every day for the next two or three years. Whenever I get nervous before a show, I think: ‘Well, it can’t be as bad as that!'”
