Metronomy have admitted that they'd challenge Beady Eye to a fight.
Speaking to NME after their performance at Bestival, frontman Joe Mount and bassist Gbenga Adelekan said they would challenge Liam Gallagher and his bandmates to a scuffle, to watch the video click above.
When asked what band they'd get in a fight with Adelekan said: "Beady Eye!" before Mount chastised him. He said: "Gbenga! You've got to think about it!"
Adelekan persisted saying: "Liam can say we look like a University Challenge team or something." Mount added: "What's happened to your media training?! This is going on the website! They're going to pick out that one line..."
Mount also admitted that he used to get compared to Jonathan Creek star Alan Davies by a girl he once fancied.
Metronomy made the shortlist for last week's Mercury Prize for their album 'The English Riviera'.
