Saw this link on Herald‘s page:
Bodyguards for threatened piper
From the page: “A musician who plays heavy rock on the Northumberland pipes has hired bodyguards after death threats from people angry at her style of music.
Jacqui Powell-Swinburne, who uses the stage name Ryofu, covers the likes of Black Sabbath and Frank Zappa.”
….. Death threats and bodyguards? Crazy. I’m surprised anyone gives a shit. I echo Herald in suspecting her music is ‘freaking awful’ (description suggests it could be played to hostage-takers to elicit swift surrender and release of hostages) but as long as she isn’t busking in the street, driving passers-by insane by inflicting this on them, then she should be free to express herself however she wishes.
It is extremely unlikely that I will be buying her cd (currently in preparation) or attending her performance at Buddle Arts Centre, Wallsend, on 18 June.
