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.

Jake Bugg is not ready for close angles.

Each of them consists of five tetrachords (sequences of four sounds arranged in an incoming manner), which in a certain way are interconnected. This connection can be fused: the top sound of a given tetrachord is simultaneously the bottom sound of the one following it. The frets formed in this way are called quart. But there is also a separate connection, otherwise called adjacent: a new tetrachord does not begin with the last sound of the previous one, but with the other following it.
