Wam Bam In The Wig Wam - Tomorrow Night!

The intra-band feud has been simmering for two weeks now and tomorrow night, the matter will be settled once and for all. STA's globe-trotting ultimate warriors Fighting With Wire are threatening to "Whip some ginger boys to within an inch of their lives", Belfast's legion of doom, And So I Watch You From Afar's erudite response "We are coming to Custom House Square on Saturday night for two reasons, to chew bubble gum and kick some ass and we're all out of bubble gum..."

It's unfortunate that it's had to end this way as a label we've always prided ourselves on the community spirit that exists between our artists. Apparently, the spark that ignited the flame was Cahir's verbal abuse of an audience member at Glasgowbury Festival 2008 that threw a can of cider at him. It turns out that the girl in question was 12 and only passed the beverage in question skyward because her hero 'looked very thirsty'.

If you haven't seen the video messages circulating the internet by both bands you can catch up from the following links: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Or listen to a live altercation via the BBC's iPlayer on Across The Line (listen from about 12"30')
