Arcade Fire ‘not good people’

Movie maker Vincent Moon has branded members of Arcade Fire ‘disgusting’, in an astonishing verbal broadside.

The director,who filmed the band’s 2008 tour documentary Mirror Noir, said they were ‘not good people’ and approached music in a ‘mainstream’ way

’They're not good people, that's it. And I don't mean the whole band - I mean the leaders of the band and their management,’ Moon said to Eye Weekly.

’What I hate about the band now is that people call them an indie band and they're not an indie band, they are a mainstream band. Maybe they're on an indie label but that doesn't mean anything. Those guys are just making things on a very big level - a very mainstream way of thinking.’

He added: ‘The way they deal with their business is really disgusting for me. The way they deal with things is awful. Their management are awful, awful people, and I know what I'm talking about. I have some really terrible stories with them.’

Yet he says not what the stories are. The tease!
