There is a new Pixies single though...
Alt-right favorite Jordan Peterson shares photo with Mumford and Sons in studio
I fucking hate mumford and sons.
Just when you thought you couldn't hate them any more...
Shouldn't that "alt-right favourite" Mumford and Sons photobomb Jordan Peterson?
That is one *hell* of a bump!
OMG Sass started a whole thread to talk about how Mumford and Sons were the best thing he'd heard since Glen Miller, that's adorable.
Tragic, but adorable.
Just heard Peterson interviewed on the World Service. First time I've heard him. He didn't seem as alt right as I'd been led to expect. More old school conservative. Although it was hard to tell because every answer he gave began with "no, I've never said that" or "no, that's not what I think". So either the interviewer was rubbish (highly likely), or that's just his strategy. They both seemed like pricks to be fair.
Denying half the stuff you've ever said or done, regardless of documentary evidence, is pretty standard alt-right stuff.
To be fair I've no idea if he had said those things, nor will I ever find out.
This is the most shameless bit of like-farming I've seen in a while.
People do like to claim he said things he didn't, though I did see one case where he downgraded a "belief" to a "suspicion", with a decent time lag between the two tbf.
I think both right and left have fully embraced the post-truth climate, and it's fine nowadays to lie if it helps your agenda or impresses your mates. Peterson has been adopted by some of the right for some of the things he has said, but on balance he's probably to the left of pretty much the whole of the UK Tories and the US Democrats (on socialised healthcare, wealth redistribution, drug decriminalisation, for example).
I know and I'm deeply annoyed that I've only managed to muster a mere 6 likes.
Surely George Ezra is the son of 'Mumford & Sons', popular with youngsters I believe. No idea where that weird accent comes from.
