Pigeons stop concert - did it have to do with the music?

    I hope this isn't a d_b.
    Were the pigeons dumping on the band because that's what pigeons do or because they didn't like the music?


    Just the first few paragraphs:

    "Pigeons" - Genesis

    Lyrics below:

    Who put fifty tons of sh_t on the Foreign Office roof?
    Who suffers from nine known diseases?
    Who gets up in the morning when the sun comes up
    And makes their beds, paper clips, bus tickets
    All around their heads?
    Who congregate around Trafalgar Square
    Taking pot shots at the tourists?
    Oh you've got to watch out
    When you wander round the square in the morning
    Cos they're everywhere, they're everywhere

    Here we have an honest man
    A civil servant to boot
    He lived high up in the Ministry
    And when he wished to make a point
    He knew just what to do
    His window ledges were all covered in grease
    "I want them out of here"

    He said to me, "I want them gone"
    Because you see - Oh don't you see
    None of us are getting any younger
    You've got to follow your nose
    And if it tells you that you've got to go
    Well that's because, they're everywhere,
    They're everywhere

    So we called in those men, those horrible men
    We set them to work on the rooftops
    You see their van is very plain
    And I know they're too ashamed
    To wear their by appointment badges anymore
    Sometimes they use vaseline, sometimes they use the pill
    I've often seen them with a gun
    But as the years go by, old habits seem to die
    And nowadays they knockatize them all
    Oh you've got to watch out
    As you wander round the square in the morning
    Oh they're everywhere, they're everywhere

    Kings of Poopon?

    Anyway, this wouldn't have been an issue in the 60s:

    Another reason to hate KoL -- or maybe love them. They won't let Glee use their music!

    In much less amusing concert news...man leaps to his death at Swell Season (band from movie "Once") concert in California.

    I hate myself a little, but I stifled a giggle.

    This is almost as funny as Tila Tiquila getting pelted by rocks, bottles and feces at the Insain Clown Posse fest and Indiana.

    No, I take that back. Nothing is as funny as that.
