Watson’s open letter to Ed Miliband was written last week, where he signed off with the topic of Glastonbury and a Drenge shout-out. -”And if you want to see an awesome band,” the now infamous letter read. “I recommend Drenge.”
“I’m not totally overjoyed that it happened but at the same time I don’t really care,” the band’s drummer Rory told BBC Newsbeat.
“I’m glad he’s a fan and that other people have discovered us through it. My mum’s a fan but when she says she is a fan to her mate there’s no media storm over that.”
Rory added: “We’ve kind of been shown to a load of people who don’t really care which is fine. I’d rather that we hadn’t and people had discovered us in their own way rather than through a news story.”
