Even after organisers of the Lucerne Blue Balls Festival had got special dispentation to let their acts play at 100 dB (the usual limit in Switzerland is 93), Iggy Pop managed to set his equipment up too loud for comfort - and too loud for the law. The 58 year-old hit 102.5 during his performance, and as such landed the festival team with a SWF1,500 fine.

These old folks just don't care about youngsters trying to get some sleep, do they?
