The Kooks’ Luke Pritchard: ‘I had to kick Alex Turner in the face’

Singer reveals violent feud with Arctic Monkeys

The Kooks‘ frontman Luke Pritchard has revealed a secret feud between his band and Arctic Monkeys‘ singer Alex Turner.

Pritchard told The Daily Mirror that the two bands do not see eye-to-eye, and that their dispute has got physical in the past.

“We have had a weird relationship with the Arctics since we first met,” he explained. “I had to kick Alex in the face after he tried to pull the leads out of my guitar pedals while we were on stage.”

He added: “I tried to patch things up with Alex recently but he just turned his back and walked away. I suppose they are quite arrogant.”
