'There's a reverse snobbery toward us in England, that's why we love America' Mumford talk image

Music News

Mumford and Sons have been speaking out about they dislike their "posh" perceived image in this country.

Winston Marshal Mumford has revealed: "There is a reverse snobbishness in England towards that sort of stuff. And I think that's one of the reasons we really enjoy America, 'cos we're classless." Reverse snobbishness: strike one.

 "We don't really care [Cameron's a fan]," explains lead singer and half-Californian Marcus Mumford, "We never get pissed off when anyone says they like our music."

"There's probably worse people who like our music," chimes in Winston Marshall again, "Well I dunno [laughs]. What's more annoying is to be associated with any political party, particularly if you don't like those political parties.

"As a band, I don't think we've ever talked about politics. I wouldn't say I'd know what any of these three would vote in an election."

Then onto the label of being posh...

"We're not the first band who went to public school." says a distraut Teddy Mumford..

Ben Lovett added: "I think it's unfair to hammer anyone for anything. People should celebrate or ignore, that would be nice. On top of that, I just don't consider myself a posh person."

Self destruct.
