Earlier this year, an incredibly elderly couple got in trouble with the Swedish police for blasting “Afraid To Shoot Strangers” by Iron Maiden and now a 51-year-old dude named Paul Foster from England is being sentenced to almost a month in jail for blasting Pink Floyd and soul standards until (and through) the wee hours of the night. What ever happened to turning that stuff up to eleven?
Foster’s neighbors say that his repetitive playing of Pink Floyd has been “a nightmare.” One family even moved.
“I like Pink Floyd as much as the next man – but not when it’s being played ten times a day until 4am,” said one neighbor. “I’ve lost track of the times I’ve heard Barry White and Marvin Gaye coming from the house, but it was mainly Pink Floyd. I think whenever I hear their songs again I’ll be climbing the walls.”
This is not the first time Foster has been in trouble. He’s already been to court once but went out of bounds a few more times.
Maybe his neighbors just need some more bricks in their wall?
