Pink Floyd fan jailed for loud late-night album sessions

A Pink Floyd fan has been jailed for being a neighborhood nuisance after blasting the band’s albums endlessly late at night.

SWNS reports Paul Foster, 51, of Chesterton, Stoke-on-Trent, repeatedly played tracks by the UK band at full volume making residents lives a misery.

Fed-up neighbors said Foster would often leave his radio on all night pumping out albums such as “Dark Side of The Moon”, “The Wall” and “Wish You Were Here”.

Foster has been jailed for 28 days for breaching an injunction from playing loud music for the fifth time.

Foster first went before the courts in September last year but then breached an ‘undertaking to his future conduct’ agreement on October 4 and December 1 last year.

He was sentenced to 21 days in jail suspended for one year on January 17 and also served with an injunction banning him from causing nuisance noise.

He breached the injunction on February 22 and was jailed for 63 days on March 20 when he admitted further breaches.

Foster then breached the injunction again on May 30 despite spending time at at HMP Dovegate prison, in Staffordshire.
