Nasty scenes at Black Wire's Newcastle gig on Tuesday, when a stage invaion left their guitarist in hospital. Tom Greatorex singer issued a statement:

We would have loved to have finished the gig and played the rest of the songs, but it's made impossible when people get onstage. All si's back is cut open and our equipment trampled on."

"It makes it increasingly unenjoyable to play shows. I don't wish to sound like a moaning bastard, but it starts to beg the question 'What's the point?'"

"Obviously we love people dancing and getting involved, but when that gets to the point of being forced off stage and un-able to carry on playing it's very frustrating and slightly pointless."

Si McCabe needed hospital treatment after he was thrown onto broken glass.
