Metallica not popular in Scotland?

We at the Towers are in agreement with our friends at Mogwai. There now, all can sleep easier in their beds knowing that.

 

Mogwai have dismissed Glastonbury headliners Metallica as being “unbelievably bad.”
The Scottish band will headline The Park Stage at Glastonbury on the same night (Saturday) Metallica perform on The Pyramid Stage later this month (June)

Speaking to ‘allatsea’, the band were not filled with support for their fellow headliners however, instead criticising drummer Lars Ulrich’s technical ability and saying any controversy about their appearance at the festival is because the band are “shite”.
“I can’t wait to hear that guy play the drums again – unbelievably bad,” Barry Burns of the band said. “He’s terrible.”
Meanwhile, frontman Stuart Braitwaite continued: “I just can’t wait until we go all quiet and you can hear ‘Enter Sandman’ in the background, because we’re on at the same time. I don’t really see the fuss. They’re a pretty big rock band and it’s a pretty big rock festival.”
Other artists to pass comment on this year’s Saturday night headliners at the Worthy Farm Festival include
Arctic Monkeys, Mick Jagger, Kasabian and Johnny Marr.

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
