However, in a follow-up yesterday (August 9) Barrow retracted the comments.
He said: “Just to let you know after my rants the other day that were reported about a certain producer. I don’t rate myself better or above anyone else.
“It was purely a response to a message that suggested he should produce our album. And to be honest I’m a grumpy old fuck who hates everything, cheers.”
The band continue to work on their new album, the follow up to their 1997 self-titled second studio record.
