The Streets - Mike Skinner's Foul-mouthed Tirade At Aphex Twin

Rapper Mike Skinner has taken aim at dance music star Aphex Twin, re-igniting an explosive war-of-words between the British musicians.
The former The Streets star famously slammed Aphex Twin - real name Richard James - at a festival in Germany in 2006 after he performed surrounded by a group of disabled fans playing netball.
Now Skinner has risked fuelling their long-running feud by branding James "s**t" in a tirade in his upcoming memoirs.
He writes, "Don't get me started on the Aphex Twin... He's an absolute k**b-jockey. I'm not generally one for speaking harshly of other musicians, but he's been quite vocal in his distaste for The Streets over the years, so fair's fair. I don't normally mind people not liking me, but people who don't like me who are absolute s**t, I do have a problem with.
"I spent an entire evening cussing him over the PA at a German festival called Melt once, after he came onstage with about 20 disabled people playing netball in wheelchairs. I realise that on paper this might look like quite an impressive spectacle, in a Spinal Tap kind of way, but to those who were actually there, it just felt really wrong."
