Wayne Coyne: Arcade Fire "were just dicks to everybody they came in contact with"

Wayne Coyne makes a welcome return to the hating-on-the-Arcade-Fire game in this Pitchfork promotional video [This part starts around 4 minutes into part two, "Wayne Coyne interview"]:
My experience even with Arcade Fire is like, yeah I like some of their music. But we were around them at times and they were -- they weren't even dicks to me, they were just dicks to everybody they came in contact with. Not even just the band, their crew (too). Everybody was just like, "We are better than you and you need to get out of our way." They kicked people out of their dressing rooms. They kicked people out of their dressing rooms! It's like, we're just sitting in here talking.

It puts people on the spot, because most people who are at festivals like this aren't -- not that they're submissive but we just don't want hassle. If a guy comes in here and says get out, we get out and we're like, oh well. But that gives us the perfect right to say, "That guy's a dick. Fuck 'em." You know what I mean? That is the nature of your behavior. You are what you behave as.
Glad to see Wayne is no longer pretending to regret his trash-talking.
