KASMs thrown out of Kendal Calling

United Kingdom United Kingdom | by Francis Whittaker | 04 August 2009

Frontwoman Rachel Mary Callaghan apparently leapt into the kit at the culmination of the show, which had been hired by the festival's promoters for the weekend.

This provoked the ire of the individual in charge of the drum kit, who called festival security once he had discovered the damage.

Speaking on kasms.blogspot.com, the band said: “The drum keeper was immediately irate and I began to try and ascertain the extent of the damage. There was nothing that could be done to tranquilize his anger; the man had become strangely attached to his hired kit.”

Kasms said the damage itself was “inconsequential; a small scratch to the largest of the drums.”

The blog post states security physically removed their wristbands before they were chaperoned off site and singer Callaghan was said to have been 'scratched' during her scuffle with the guards.

After being left at the perimeter of the Kendal Calling site at Lowther Deer Park, the edgy east Londoners retreated to the sanctuary of a fish restaurant in the nearby village of Shap.
