C’mon, it’s not 1963

I read in the paper this morning that Pete Doherty’s Babyshambles has been banned from playing at the Moonfest festival in Wiltshire.

Apparently Wiltshire police have convinced magistrates to provide a closure order for the festival on the night the band were scheduled to perform.

The reason?

Well, Superintendent Julian Kirby, the divisional commander, told Wilthshire’s Gazette and Herald (think thick West Country accent):

‘We carried out an analysis of what Pete Doherty and his band does. What he does as part of his routine is to gee up the crowd.

‘They speed up then slow down the music (it’s called rock’n’roll, Julian) and create a whirpool effect in the crowd (that would be a mosh-pit). They then all get geed up and start fighting.’

What a star. I’d love to meet this guy.
