Words fail me on this one.
“After a security officer noticed the offending sticker, airport staff “had a K-9 bomb dog respond, [police] cleared the scene, and [they] indicated that it was not an explosive”. No kidding. And here’s the kicker: “the bike’s owner was brought into custody and was restricted access to the space around the two-wheeled vehicle”. Rumor has it he has been arrested and that the FBI is investigating.
Now for the out-of-the ordinary part.
In February of last year, a musician by the name of Liam Bradley sent off a mobile phone video performance of the trio to Sony BMG. The Major replied briefly after and in April sent the priests a record contract worth $2 million to be released by Christmas (one of the contract’s clauses was for the priests’ day jobs to have priority on their musical career). Their debut recording has been produced by Mike Hedges, whose previous work includes best selling albums by U2, The Cure and Dido. Their self-titled album released on November 18th and immediately hit the top of the lists in both European and American charts. It broke the world record for ‘ fastest selling UK debut for a classical act’. They declined the opportunity to do a major 3 million pound tour. A documentary called ‘The Three Priests Singing” (here is part 1. Just follow through up to part 6 to see it all. It’s very interesting) was instantly produced and relates the priests mass-media adventure during their album’s production process. It has aired publicly in December. Since then the trio has been performing live in the most illustrious cathedral accompanied by the most prestigious orchestras conducted by the most esteemed conductors.
Don’t really know what concluding sentence I could use here, so I’ll leave you to your thoughts on the matter.
