Summary Jake's inspiration for the old way of doing things arrived via a relatively modern medium: an episode of The Simpsons. "Don McLean's 'Vincent came on," he recalls. "And I was like, 'What's that song?" From there I just wanted to be able to play that song and write songs like it, and that's where it all started for me, really."From there, he did what anyone does when they fall for a song hook, line and sinker: he began tracing it back. Via Youtube, he explored the other works of McLean, and then went further back through Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens, seeking the ultimate origins of all the great songwriters. That was what turned him on. "Modern music came later for me," he says. "I remember hearing Arctic Monkeys for the first time, and I didn't really like it. It was only when I got a bit older that I started thinking, 'That's bang on, that's great.' It took a while."This is key to what Jake Bugg and his songs are all about: from the rough and ready, abrasive guitars on 'Lightning Bolt' to the wise-beyond-his-years observations of 'Seen It All', to all of the other songs you can find on his debut, it's all just so natural, so real, so un-thought through, so obviously from the soul. He is the sort of artist that so many people have been yearning for, of the kind that we have not seen since. well, since the people who are currently asking him to come out on tour with them.
