FURRIES GROWLED AT BY LOCALS: Curiously, the petition being gotten up to try and block the Super Furry Animals gig in Brecon isn't an anti-music thing; it's specifically an anti-rock thing - residents don't mind a jazz festival, providing it's, well, just jazzy, according to mayor Mike Gittins:

Watton Field is hallowed turf in the town surrounded by homes inhabited by senior citizens. They, and others in the town, are concerned about the Super Furry Animals' concert. I think people associate rock and roll with sex, drugs and alcohol and they are also concerned that the Super Furry Animals are more of a rock group than a jazz group."

Yup, you'd never get a jazz musician being caught up in a whirl of drugs, would you?
