Patrick Wolf has attacked men who come to his gigs and shout abuse in a post on his MySpace.

Writing on the blog, Wolf says had he had "one off show but mainly due to random Neandrathals [sic] at the back of the gig shouting super intelligent things like "get your cock out" etc.

"My good lord, I am not the Jonas brothers, if you want that kind of "rapport" from a musician then do leave me and my band in peace to get on with singing, performing and making music while onstage or at least engage or enjoy with the show or get the hell out... and get your kicks at the local chippendales strip joint or xtube... or come ask me such questions face to face and you'll receive an honest personal response that will probably see you checking into hospital for a few days."

"If I was a woman would it be respectable for you to ask me to show you my tits?" he rightly adds. "This rant is not about this one comment.. its about a general "shoot the freak" mentality that comes with speculators coming to a show with only the intention at hurling abuse at me."

Wolf also revealed that he'd set up an official Twitter account. "I think i drunkenly set one up months ago that now has 1,600 followers... and i only ever sent one message saying something ridiculous like THIS IS S* and when i sobered up I had totally forgotten the password and any recollection of setting the account up... i promise this won't happen again...." he said.
