Singer Sandi Thom has said she has no plans to quit the music industry, after filming an extraordinary tirade against Radio 2 earlier this week.

In the clip, the singer, famous for the hit I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker, is seen hysterically crying after her latest song failed to make the Radio 2 playlist.

‘I am done with this industry. I am f****** sick’, she is heard to say.

‘I’m six months pregnant so emotions are running high anyway, but mostly it’s seven years of being independent and self-managed, self-producing, self-released, self-financed and still not getting any luck.

‘I know some people think it’s a publicity stunt. I’m not a publicity stunt kind of girl’, she said.

Describing her family’s reaction to the clip, she added: ‘My husband was a little concerned because I’ve had backlash in the past, and I think everyone was concerned that I’d get a lot of flak, so I think it was like Sandi I think you need to take that down.

‘But by the time that happened several people had picked up on it and then it’s just snowballed.‘

Chris Moyles Breakfast Show is on daily from 6.30am to 10am on Radio X.
