Turn down the garage music!

Thursday, May 5th, 2005

Looks like Birmingham needs to turn down its garage scene. According to Robert Gale:

British police have moved to swiftly shut down a pirate radio station after pilots complained that thumping dance music was drowning out instructions from air traffic controllers as they landed at a nearby airport, a report said on Tuesday.

Pilots landing passenger jets at Birmingham airport in central England reported hearing loud bursts of “garage”, a cutting-edged form of dance music characterised by frantic beats and prominent, repetitive baselines.

… So there you have it. Not sure I’d describe garage as “cutting edge” anymore though!
