Your guitars are ready, Mr Mumford
Friday 22 January 2010
In a whirlwind year that saw London folk rock band Mumford & Sons score a Top 7 debut album, they toured the UK, Europe, America and India.
Here are a selection of pictures of their adventures, some captured by band member Ted Dwane.
The main image is taken from the video for their upcoming single "The Cave", created while they were in Goa in December. There, Marcus Mumford and Dwane tested some Royal Enfield motor bikes. Dwane recalls: "I took mine out through the villages along the coast. Each time I got to the next village I promised I would check out just one more and then head for home. This went on for several hours until I was very nearly out of fuel and certainly lost. Getting home involved bartering for a water-bottle of fuel and negotiating my way through a herd of cattle in the dark." To the right, Ben Lovett is seen hunting for a taxi in New York.
