The Automatic have labeled Kasabian â€˜patheticâ€™ for their recent tirade against a series of artists.
As previously reported, the Leicester band launched a scathing attack on Pete Doherty, Bloc Party, Test Icicles and The Automatic themselves.
But, The Automaticâ€™s keyboardist Pennie has snubbed the name calling and thinks that pop big gob Lily Allen is no better.
Asked what acts he hated, Pennie told The Barfly: â€œWell Iâ€™m not going to be as pathetic as Kasabian and slag other bands offâ€¦ thereâ€™s just no need for it.
â€But I have to say that Lily Allen is a bit annoying running round squeaking â€˜Iâ€™ve got number one, Iâ€™ve got number one!â€™ I donâ€™t care whoâ€™s at number oneâ€¦ sheâ€™ll only be there a week or so anyway!â€
