Stylus, A Crossbow & The Armed Offenders Squad
Posted: Tue Sep 9, 2003 8:12 am
Thanks to Wildside for the following...

Stylus started the week with a harrowing 24 hours. On Monday morning they arrived at their Grey Lynn practise room where they are recording their debut album, to find their recording gear trashed.

When bassist Paul Matthews (producer of the Blindspott album) approached a fellow tenant about the incident, later that day, Paul was alledgedly threatened with a crossbow. "He started to chase me with a crossbow," Matthews told Nightline.

Matthews and fellow band member Dave Rhodes locked themselves in the band room and called the police. The other tenant barricaded himself into his room. Paul, Dave and several other tenants then exited the premises before the Police arrived.

After a four hour stand off and repeated requests to come out, tear gas was fired into the unit by the Armed Offenders Squad. A dog was then used to apprehend the man, causing injury. The man, who has since been identified as 1970s Formula 5000 driver Graham McRae, was taken by ambulance to Middlemore hospital. A crossbow was removed from the industrial unit.

Has life immitated art? The scene of the incident was used in the band's new video 'Sick Of This' as an old-fashioned "insane asylum" set.

The good news is that the Stylus computer hard drive survived the trashing and the band's digital recordings are intact.
