Like fellow folkies Dawes, Mumford & Sons seems to be one of the most predominant new acts to be name-checked by rock’s royalty. Let’s take a look at which other musical icons have endorsed Marcus Mumford and his mates.
Let’s take a look at this week’s albums, reissues and other musical goodies from classic artists making musical waves yet again.
Though the U.S. charts don’t show the same influence, the Olympics effect is out in full force on on the U.K. charts this week.
With all the issues NBC has had during their broadcast of the London Olympics – from tape delaying, to spoiling results in their news coverage – it seems fitting that they saved their biggest fail for Olympics Closing Ceremony.
The ceremony featured a “Symphony of British Music” over the last 50 years, which included a mega-set by The Who; a touch of Queen, Pink Floyd and The Kinks; five songs by the Beatles (though no Beatles performed in the ceremony); and the first performance in years by the reunited Spice Girls.
[lastfm]The Kinks’ [/lastfm]1976 album Schoolboys in Disgrace will reportedly be adapted into a feature length film.
[lastfm]Ray Davies[/lastfm] used his set at last weekend’s [lastfm]Glastonbury Music Festival[/lastfm] to pay tribute to his former [lastfm]Kinks[/lastfm] bandmate [lastfm]Peter Quaife[/lastfm], who died last week at age 66.
