Elbow’s Guy Garvey calls Vladimir Putin a ‘big dafty’ – watch

NME spoke to the band at Nos Alive festival in Portugal

Elbow frontman Guy Garvey has called Russian president Vladimir Putin a “big dafty” because of his stance on homosexuality.

Speaking to NME at the Nos Alive festival in Portugal, in a video which you can watch above, Garvey also discussed Glastonbury and the band’s chances of headlining the festival. “Of course it’d be lovely to headline, but we’d probably have to make another whopping record like ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’ before that could happen”.
