Mumford & Sons, a maior “banda de bar” do mundo

Lúcio Ribeiro


* Auuuuuuuuuuuuu!

* A história de como eu conheci a banda inglesa de indie-folk ''libertador'' Mumford & Sons beira o bizarro. Conheci quando eu fui a um show do Bonde do Rolê… Era tipo 2006 e foi num desses lugares velhos com cara de modernosos do East London. Um amigo londrino, logo após o show-arruaça do Bonde, me falou para subirmos porque tinha uma banda local que ia tocar. Subirmos para onde?, perguntei. ''Este clube é grande e tem um outro palco lá em cima, no bar.'' Eu nem tinha reparado na extensão da casa e subimos. Era pequeno, estava bombando e um bando de caras tocando folk comandava lugar. O banjo bombando. Eles são escoceses, do interior da Irlanda?, perguntei. Meu amigo: ''Não, ingleses daqui de Londres mesmo. Não são novos. É tipo banda de bar, só faz sucesso por aqui, em barzinho''.

Hoje o Mumford & Sons curte o lançamento do seu segundo álbum, ''Babel'', que chegou às lojas e internet no fim de setembro. A ''Banda de Bar'' que só fazia sucesso nos botecos de música ao vivo de Londres tocando indie-folk está num estágio pouco além daquele que eu encontrei na balada do Bonde do Rolê. ''Babel'' estreou em número 1 em várias paradas de disco pelo mundo e só nos EUA vendeu mais de 600 mil cópias em um mês, numa época em que uma banda grande comemora quando vende 100 mil.

Hoje o Mumford & Sons lança o vídeo para a música ''Lover of the Light'', canção bacana que lembra REM das antigas. O vídeo é estrelado e dirigido por Idris Elba, ator negão cool inglês de teatro e TV que estrela a série ''The Wire'', da HBO americana. O cara é do babado: é DJ, tem um projeto de hip hop e ainda produz artistas do gênero. E dirige vídeos como este do Mumford & Sons, em que atua fazendo um sujeito cego à procura da luz. O vídeo é lindão (filmado nestes ''meio do nada'' do País de Gales) e por motivos óbvios exasperante. Tem uns animais no meio, mas não entendi bem se isso tem algum significado. Enfim, o vídeo.

''Lover of the Light'', quando tocada ao vivo, tem o líder da banda, o vocalista e guitarrista Marcus Mumford, cantando enquanto toca a bateria da música. Tipo assim, nesta apresentação no programa do David Letterman de semanas atrás.

    Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    Para borrar las manchas, existen herramientas que se utilizan casi como una de borrar para dientes. Estos instrumentos quitarán las manchas pero sin danar los dientes, suelen funcionar mejor cuando se usan con una pasta dentífrica blanqueadora de dientes, y son especialmente buenas para usar después de ingerir o libar que pueda manchar.

    Great post made here. One thing I would really like to say is that most professional career fields consider the Bachelor's Degree like thejust like the entry level standard for an online college degree. Although Associate Qualifications are a great way to begin, completing your own Bachelors opens many entrances to various professions, there are numerous on-line Bachelor Course Programs available via institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another thing is that many brick and mortar institutions give Online variations of their diplomas but often for a greatly higher charge than the organizations that specialize in online degree plans.
