The Twilight Sad Mugged By Fake Police In Rome

Band Alright, Wallets Sad

Over the weekend, Scottish band The Twilight Sad ended up the victims of some terrible international relations when they were robbed by fake police in Rome. The band’s publicist assures us no one was hurt, however they did loose about 2000 pounds to the unidentified thieves. On their Myspace, the band didn’t mince words in an open “thank you note.”

“Thanks again to the 2 nice men who got dressed into their fake police uniforms, put on their bullet proof vests, put their guns in their pockets, pulled us over, showed us their fake police id, stole our money, hid our van keys and threw our passports onto the motorway. It was very much appreciated, I hope we can do it again sometime. We’ll get moonpig to make you a nice card. Fucking cunts.”

Aside from some well-deserved anger, the band will continue touring as scheduled.
