Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon speaks out about his feud with The War On Drugs in the new issue of Uncut, dated January 2015 and out now.

Kozelek has so far released two songs referring to the disagreement – which began when he claimed his set was disrupted by sound from The War On Drugs’ performance on another stage at Canada’s Ottawa Folk Fest on September 14 this year – “War On Drugs: Suck My Cock” and “Adam Granofsky Blues”.

“The band tweeted they wanted confirmation of my stage banter,” says Kozelek, “and they got it. They tweet, I write songs. That’s how it works.”

Asked whether he regrets any of the language he used in “War On Drugs: Suck My Cock”, Kozelek replies: “Language? Who are you, Tipper Gore? I’ve got a great sense of humour and anyone who doesn’t share it is entitled to go cry about nothing.”

The new issue of Uncut, featuring a full, wide-ranging interview with Kozelek, is out now.
