British Punk Band Kicks Out Drummer After He’s Convicted of Having Sex With Animals

This isn’t going to help the reputation of The 4130s.  They’ve fired drummer Oliver Lown after he was found guilty of five charges of bestiality.  And this isn’t just based on hearsay.  He videoed himself doing…stuff five times. With a dog.  And a horse. And did I mention that Lown is a qualified veterinarian?

He won’t serve any jail time, but he won’t be with the band anymore.  And I’d suspect he’ll have trouble finding a new gig as a vet.

To distance themselves from the whole situation, The 4130s say they’ll re-record their debut record with a new drummer and then donate proceeds to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
