Thurston Moore gives them a tongue lashing

Quietus favourites Sonic Youth verbally attacked the BNP at a show in London over the weekend.

Guitarist and singer Thurston Moore told the audience at the Forum: "Thanks for standing up to the BNF[sic] goons...Fucking clowns".

The Quietus assumes that Moore was comparing the BNP to the former National Front, rather than simply getting their name wrong.
