Sussex Busker Who Can Only Play Oasis Arrested

by | 8th, August 2010

DEAN Langley is the busker who can only play Wonderwall by Oasis and American Pie by Don McLean. On July 29, 2010, you might have caught his two-hour gig outside the Anchor Pub in Hastings, East Sussex.

The landlord asks him to make it stop. (Busking is all very well if you are passing quickly by the busker. Listening to 2.1 seconds of busking – the average time it takes to walks past a busker on the London Underground – is enough. any mroe induces feeling of helplessness given to rage given to regret.)

Langley screams abuse at the landlord. Police come. He screams abuse at them.

If he can get a Screaming Jay Hawkins tape, Langley may add to his repertoire.

If you missed Langley first time round, you might have spotted him when he rocked up to Hastings Magistrates’ Court accused of “begging in a public place and using abusive words or behaviour to cause harassment, alarm or distress”.

He pleads guilty to all charges.

Langley is fined £80 for his threatening behaviour, £50 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

How he manages to get the money to pay the fine is a moot point, but not a mute one. Take it away, Mr Langleeeeeeeeeeey….
