stunned - STUNNED - that the guy who plays banjo in a white guy pop group that merges boarding school trad folk with the music that plays in waitrose turned out to be open fash

surely that inclination must be limited to just the banjo player though. surely the rest of a band dedicated to bringing western pop music back to its folksy roots, who once took a group photo with jordan b peterson in their studio, couldn't also happen to be actual fash

i'm being facetious but i think there's a wider point here about how genre can be the message; how genre right now means pastiche, means putting on an accent you don't have; how shit can be *right there*.

(the chief mumford carefully distanced himself from jordan b peterson, saying he didn't agree with (all of) peterson's shit and that he just wanted a conversation with him, not necessarily agreeing with him and also *drumroll* he wasn't gonna cancel the entire rest of the band simply because they all really like peterson and think he's good)

lmfao the fash member of mumford and sons quit so that he could switch to an easier "cancel culture" grift instead

playing the banjo: difficult, you have to learn to play the banjo, an instrument that most people treat with instinctive revulsion
quitting doing that: you get to pretend that quitting is somehow everyone else's fault, so you get to self-righteously shout at everyone for that. this is both low-effort (no longer need to play the banjo, have skills etc) and somehow in the hell world of 2021 it's also highly lucrative.

@alex You know, I never paid much attention to them as a band. But I never did get a good feeling from them.

@erosdiscordia they're kind of ubiquitously inoffensive at a surface level, but i associate them so much with british twee reactionary aesthetics. also they're all from absurdly wealthy families lol

re: mumford and sons being fash 

@alex Sounds like avoidance was the right call.
