Smith Blasts Mumford & Sons' Music

Sneering THE FALL rocker MARK E. SMITH literally took aim at folk band MUMFORD & SONS during a recent music festival in Ireland - he launched a bottle at the stage during their set because he didn't like their music.
The Fall shared the bill with Mumford & Sons at the Electric Prom event, which took place near Dublin, in September (10), and the veteran singer admits he hated what he heard during the English quartet's rehearsal sessions, and made his disdain clear by throwing a missile at them.
He tells Australia's Brag magazine, "We were playing a festival in Dublin the other week. There was this other group warming up in the next sort of chalet, and they were terrible.
"I said, 'Shut them c**ts up', and they were still warming up, so I threw a bottle at them. The band said, 'That's the Sons of Mumford (sic) or something, they're number five in the charts!' I just thought they were a load of retarded Irish folk singers."
