BOURNE LOSES HIS BOTTLE

It seems unlikely that Son of Dork are going to turn up on the bill at Reading this year.

Well, of course it is - no matter how poor Reading might have become, even Clear Channel would realise that booking the Joanie Loves Chachi of Busted spin-offs would be a waste of everyone's time and money. But even if they offered, James Bourne would be too scared to play, as he's haunted by the potato-and-bottle hail that greeted Fightstar (the Mork and Mindy, since you ask) there last year:

"Charlie got it with his band and I don't see why we should take that chance. I'd rather just not go to a festival at all - even as a punter. If I can't go on stage without that risk, what are the chances of me walking through crowds without a bottle being thrown? I've got no interest in it."

Well, he's got a point - after the mayhem and injuries at last year's Reading Festival, he would be at risk of getting caught in a rumble. But not because you're in Son of Dork, Jim: somebody would have to recognise you for that to happen.
