Raygun singer apologises for 'Lack Of Awareness' viral video

Frontman Ray Gun says sorry to his band mates and Delia Smith

Raygun singer Ray Gun has apologised for the comments he made in a TV interview that went viral online earlier this week (beginning August 3).

The frontman was responding to a TV interview with his band that, when posted on YouTube, resulted in relentless mockery from users because of the clichéd comments he made.

Gun issued a statement to Holy Moly apologising to both his bandmates and TV chef Delia Smith – as he used the term "Psychedelia Smith" to describe his band's sound.

"I'm sorry to my bandmates Adj, Sam and the other one," he wrote in a self-depricating but mildly comical tone. "I apologise to Delia Smith and to the concept of psychedelia. What I did to you both was unforgivable."

Referring to an analogy he made in the interview, he added: "I now fully accept that if you stuck Iggy Pop, James Brown, David Bowie and Shirley Bassey in a lift you would basically just have Iggy Pop, James Brown, David Bowie and Shirley Bassey in a lift. You would not have our music. You would have three famous singers and a dead one."

He signed off with a plea: "I close by thanking you for your time and requesting that my band and I are now afforded some space, and some time, to consider these awful events and to rebuild our lives.

"This is now a band matter and I respectfully ask that we are permitted to move forward in private."
