I am – contrary to the controversial scrawlings of Xerox George on the walls of Mumford HQ’s latrine – not, ‘a fat town crier’. Nor, just for the record, do i have ‘the hair of a wet hippo’. You’ll get yours George, I know where your Nan lives – I am, in loose truth, an announcer of great subtlety and charm: inter-weaving some of the finest threads known to language into life’s great written-word tapestry.
No, not for me the bell and bellow.
Except of course, when announci… Okay, not announcing, you’ve read this on a hundred other sites, in a hundred other ways already, so let’s go with confirming… When confirming that our beloved Sons will be palying this years Glastonbury!
Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Mumford and Sons Are Playing Glastonbury!
Please do note the change in font colour above on the ‘ding dong’s’; went with a brassy-bell yellow to serve as a kind of visual aid. Nice touch? Well I thought so anyway…
I don’t need to tell you how amazing the Eavis family’s festival is, nor how hard and tirelessly they work ensuring it remains amazing year in, year out, do I? I shall instead slap you about the face with these facts: Friday 25th June 2010. Mumford & Sons. John Peel Stage. Boom. An. Ting.
This is going to be very, very special.
