Badly Drawn Boy slammed The Guillemots at Ramsbottom Festival this weekend.

The Mercury nominated group were the headliners for the Saturday night, while Badly Drawn Boy performed just before them.

While backstage, the angry singer-songwriter fumed about being put on below the band.

He told MM: “Who the f**k are The Guillemots? Could you even name one of their songs? I’m hoping to go on early and they’re going to have to drag me off.”

The Bolton-raised musician, whose real name is Damon Gough, was also angry about how long he had been given on stage.

“Forty-five minutes? They’re taking the p*ss! I have 300 songs,” he said.

Despite his grievances backstage, he gave a crowd-pleasing performance and finished to a huge applause.

But he was sure to finish on a quip: “Good job I’m talented eh?”
