Marcus Mumford talks Babel, Bandanas and The Boss!
21 September 2012
Mumford And Sons scored the feature album this week on Triple J, and The Doctor scored a chat with the gentlemanly lead dude.
(or “sweet lump of guitar slinging man meat”, as The Doctor said on FB)
He talked about their new album, why the big sounding songs require big themes, and how they still don’t have a proper drummer!
They also discussed Ben Mumford’s bandana obsession…
…and the new supergroup Mumford/Springsteen.
Some other things discussed in this interview include which two songs the band will perform on Saturday Night Live on September 22nd, Ted’s multiple doppelgängers, which band member is “never, ever, EVER allowed to play drums,” and much, much more. Listen to the fantastic full interview above.
There are a few seconds each of “I Will Wait,” “Broken Crown,” and “Babel” in this interview, but not the entire songs.
