Marcus Mumford can't believe it

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We're fucking knackered. When we released Sigh No More, our manager said, 'We're probably gonna sell between 100,000 and 150,00 records.' And we were like, 'That's amazing!' Since then, everything has gotten more ridiculous, fantastical and mind-fucking. As we were making BabelSigh No More's shadow kept getting bigger and bigger. There was a lot in us that was like, 'That's OK, fuck it, Babel will be the disappointing second child—like a lot of us are, actually. And that's fine. We were making it really believing it and thinking about that as much as possible—and so it's really sweet now to see it do its thing as well. That's crazy for us." —Marcus Mumford, on Rollingstone.com, following Mumford & Sons' triumphant weekend. (2/14a)
