I’ve had this guy on the blog before, but now that Jake Bugg has become a success, the hipster collective has decided that he is shit, a sell-out. Some even call him stronger names than that. So, in order to separate myself from the hipster collective, here’s a post about Jake Bugg.
People compare him to Liam Gallagher, Neil Diamond or Bob Dylan. To me he’s none of those. He’s from another tradition, the blue eyed blues singer, describing the sink estates of this country, and the people that live there. He’s uniquely English that way, standing on the shoulders of people like Otis Redding and Muddy Waters.
