Radio 1 is the BBC’s model of an American Prime 40 station, although it does enterprise outdoors a strictly pop format at night time. Perhaps that’s how fashionable rock mainstays Royal Blood received booked for Radio 1’s Massive Weekend music competition proper in between Niall Horan and Lewis Capaldi. The occasion — which occurred final Friday-Sunday at Camperdown Park in Dundee, Scotland — apparently drew a special form of crowd than Royal Blood are used to taking part in for. The rock duo didn’t take it so properly.

Close to the top of Royal Blood’s main-stage set, bassist and singer Mike Kerr started to bitterly, sarcastically handle the viewers:

Properly, I suppose I ought to introduce ourselves seeing as nobody really is aware of who we’re. We’re referred to as Royal Blood, and that is, uh, rock music? Who likes rock music? 9 folks. Sensible. That is Ben Thatcher. He performs drums. All people say hello to Ben, please. We’re having to clap ourselves as a result of that was so pathetic. Properly achieved, Ben.

Kerr then moved throughout the stage and inquired to somebody off digital camera, presumably a member of the crew. “Will you clap for us?” he requested. “Will you clap? You’re busy. Are you able to clap? He’s busy — sure! Even he’s clapping. What does that say about you?” The band then performed one final discordant be aware and walked offstage, with Kerr elevating each center fingers on his manner out.

Kyle, possibly they had been hoping to realize some free consideration by way of weblog posts like this one? The stunt was much more entertaining than any Royal Blood tune I’ve ever heard. Royal Blood’s new album Again To The Water Beneath is out 9/8 by way of Warner. Mission achieved?
