FRED & NICK directed ‘The Cave’ video nomination

Quick one: the video for ‘The Cave’, shot on location in Goa, has been nominated in the Best Rock Video category at the 2011 MTV VMAs, which is cool for the following reasons:
Number 1. it’s always extremely nice to be nominated for something.
Number 2. it was directed by long time friends of the band FRED & NICK. Yes they the directors of the Gentlemen of the Road series and the video for ‘Little Lion Man’ too.

    I am old eough to remember watching Neil Armstrong step on the Moon. In that time, this is some of the best, most thought-proving lyrics I have ever heard/read. I am so pissed at myself for missing you here in the US. I DID vote for “The Cave” and, IMHO, if it doesn’t win, it just proves what kind of Panderer’s MTV has become. I drove into work today, sing along with that song at the top of my voice, terrifing birds, squirrels and the ocassional co-worker ;) The more I listen, the more I am amazed

    This video was my first exposure to Mumford & Sons. That was all it took; I was hooked.

    So much recognition should be shown for you as individuals and as a whole band. Music like your does not come around very often because people are so wrapped up in what is “cool” and “in”. They become scared of what they love and become cookie cutter. I love that you gentlemen are unique and pure. I love that fact that you play festivals. I believe that concerts for a particular band are a thing of the past. Of course, they will continue, but the idea of getting out there and people be able to hear incredible music for the first time or being fans already, are able to see other bands and really enjoy the atmosphere and performance. The passion you have can drive anyone to tears. I wait the day I see you in person. Congrats on everything in your life, career, and personally. You 4 deserve it 2 fold.

    So proud of you boys. You completely and totally deserve all the recognition you have received recently. I’m not sure I could think of any other band who deserves it more, actually. Thank you for making such wonderful music that genuinely changes lives. We’ll never be able to thank you for it. Congrats!
