Babyshambles Banned From Festival For Scientific Reasons

Doherty’s boys are not welcome at Westbury’s Moonfest after British intelligence officials offered this detailed analysis of the band’s effect on audiences: “They speed up and then slow down the music and create a whirlpool effect in the crowd. They [the crowd] all get geed up and then they start fighting” (via Guardian). Analysis is the best. (Thanks to our British readers for all the tips. Your reward: Pete and Lee Mavers make a video. Watch out for geed up whirlpools though.)
