“Why are you throwing those? I’d rather drink them,” vocalist and kazoo player Macaulay Culkin reportedly shouted to audience members at the Dot to Dot Festival on Sunday. The band was just one song into their set when people started throwing pints of beer and jeering, a somewhat-clear indication that British people aren’t so much into a band that starts with classic Velvet Underground songs and replaces key lines with lyrics about generic pizza. In all, Pizza Underground got through three songs total before “storming off.” At least the band’s real fans got lots of free pizza? [Variety, Related]
