Lets just deal with the name first. Mumford & Sons. Not ideal, if you’re trying to be cool that is. There are bands out there with names like Jane’s Addiction, Primal Scream and, of course, The Rolling Stones. Just plain cool. In fact, if there’s one thing the Stones had over the Beatles, it was their name. The Beetles would have been better, but they had to get playful and incorporate the word “beat” into their name. Naughty guys, very naughty. You were young and you thought you were being clever, but no one loves a pun. I guess you made up for it though.
But Mumford & Sons? That’s a lot to make up for. I’m not even sure that John, Paul and the boys could do enough to distract us from that incredibly dorky name. I’ve seen it being mentioned in various music magazines and have sub-consciously just ignored the band. But then I started hearing that they were getting a reputation for incredible live shows with a kind of party atmosphere where everybody just lets loose.
