The Last Shadow Puppets’ support act, YAK, have said they’ll never tour with the band again, calling their crew “cunts.”

Alex Turner and Miles Kane have been touring Europe this month, and brought alt-rock band YAK along with them on the road. It seems things haven’t gone smoothly though.

After a fan Twitter account tweeted that the two bands had got into a fight about the soundcheck, they screenshot two since-deleted tweets from YAK. “Some of @LastShadowPupps crew have been assholes to us and not letting us soundcheck throughout tour. Cunts sorry Berlin,” read the first tweet.

The second said, “A disservice to us but more importantly the audience that pay to see a show. Glad it’s over never again. Biglove.”

The show in question, as NME reports, was at the 3,500 capacity Columbiahalle in Berlin, at which Turner’s dad David played the saxophone on stage while his mother watched the show.

Meanwhile. Johnny Marr recently joined The Last Shadow Puppets to perform a beautiful version of The Smiths' 'Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me' in Manchester.

The hometown hero and Smiths icon turned solo star Marr came on stage during The Last Shadow Puppets headline show at Castlefield Bowl - as Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner added a lounge lizard swagger to the track, while the rest of the band made it swoon with a searing 1960s Morricone-esque waltz. 

In other news, Alex Turner recently warned Arctic Monkeys' fans to expect a new album any time soon.
