In America. In 2017. How the hell is this even legal?

"Bywaters was reportedly photographed, finger printed, swabbed for DNA, and made to sign a sworn statement before he was allowed to board his return plane to England. He also had his passport and phone confiscated, though they were returned to him on his arrival back to London."

Kevin McCarthy in the 1956 film Invasion of the Body Snatchers, said it best "Your Next! The irony that he said that during the height of "McCarthyism" is not lost.

"Oh well," says Bywaters, "I expect to still be the singer of Peter and the Test Tube Babies by the end of the year. Will Trump still be president by the end of the summer? ... A U.S. tour or festival will never ever happen again!"

Sage words.

Now they're saying it's because he had the wrong visa (whatever that means) and not because he was mocking Trump.

It's the guy from Peter and the Test Tube Babies. They could remake "Banned From The Pubs" as "Banned From The States."

I know them from this album.

It was a regular item in the bins back in those good old days when the natives yielded to sin.
