Straight from Nottingham: Interview with Jake Bugg

Our friend Jake Bugg sings like a chipmunk, spread rot “X Factor” and strumming an acoustic guitar as if he were in a folk band. The new Jake Bugg is inspired by hip hop, spread rot Noel Gallagher and even tries to rap.

Jordan Bassett met a man in the midst of his own rebirth.

I will ask a couple of questions from Russian fans.
OK.

Nikita asks: “Will there be new videos or new recordings of live performances? How about a DVD?”
Will we burn a DVD? Sometime in the future, perhaps, but I don’t know. Now we have nothing of the Continue reading
