Test Icicles were sensationally booed off by the â€˜Arctic Armyâ€™ during an Arctic Monkeys headlining gig at the weekend.
Some fans had paid around Â£50 to ticket touts to get in to the extremely intimate gig at Liverpoolâ€™s Barfly and took great exception to the support act.
Shortly after Test Icicles played recent single â€˜Circle. Square. Triangleâ€™, large sections of the crowd turned hostile and started booing the electro-punk trio.
Plastic beer glasses were thrown towards the stage, and the antagonism grew and mass cries of â€œyouâ€™re fucking shitâ€ were heard when the band were forced to cut short the set due to a technical hitch on â€˜Boa vs. Pythonâ€™.
Guitarist and singer with the band Devonte Hynez reacted to the hostilities by saying â€œYeah, weâ€™re shit.â€
Clearly dejected, the band left the stage after playing a mere five song set.
Arctic Monkeys went on to headline the 400 capacity gig which marked their final tour date before hitting the number 1 slot.
Disappointingly the Arctic Monkeys didnâ€™t comment on the extremely aggressive reaction that their Domino label mates received.
