An Underworld fan who played their ’90s rave hit ‘Born Slippy’ on repeat has been warned that he could face jail if the disturbance continues.
The track used in the film Trainspotting was played by Clyde Taylor, 55, constantly, despite official demands to stop.
According to Manchester Evening News, council officers removed speakers, stereo equipment, a TV, amps, and electric guitar from his home following complaints from neighbours. However, Taylor replaced the gear each time and continued to play music at high volume into the early hours.
They took firm action after he ignored a “polite” request to keep the noise down.
Now he has been hit with an order which prevents him from “permitting music to be played at a level that can be heard outside the property”.
Manchester and Salford Magistrates court was told the noise continued during the working week as well as at weekends.
Now they have backed Salford council ’s application for the first ever criminal behaviour order against statutory noise nuisance in Greater Manchester.
The order lasts five years and magistrates warned him that if he breaches the order he could be arrested and jailed.
