Metallica: Are Shite
Mogwai have spoken out about their opinion of Metallica headlining Glastonbury this year - saying that they don't see the fuss, but do think they're 'shite'.

The Scottish post-rock icons are set to perform at the same time as Metallica at this year's festival, and speaking to Gigwise backstage at Primavera Sound, explained their opinion of the metal heroes.

"I can't wait to hear that guy play the drums again - unbelievably bad," said multi-instrumentalist Barry Burns. "He's terrible."

Singer 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.

"It would be good if they could go back in time to 1989. Metallica at Glastonbury in 1989

When put to the band their booking had proven controversial, drummer Martin Bulloch added: "Because they're shite."
