In a bizarre court case in Australia, it has been revealed that a man bludgeoned his flatmate to death after an argument broke out involving a Limp Bizkit album. According to the Brisbane Times, A Mr. James Albert Madden, objected when his flat mate, Emmanuel McPherson asked him turn off a Limp Bizkit album that was playing on his stereo. A fight then broke out in which Madden proceeded to fatally beat McPherson. Both men were intoxicated at the time.
McPherson was found to have been put in a shopping trolley and dumped in a creek following the incident. Mr. Madden is currently pleading not guilty to the crime. However, Crown prosecutor Greg Cummings has said the jury will hear a confession he made to a man Mr Madden believed was a fellow cellmate, but was in fact an undercover police officer who had recorded four hours of conversations he had with Mr Madden in a jail cell. The jury will hear the officer ask Mr Madden if he was going to be released. He replied: "No. I've murdered a man. Killed him a couple of days ago."
Limp Bizkit, the band whose music was at the heart of the dispute, have not commented on the incident. The band has recently finished work on "Gold Cobra", the first album since their original line-up reunion in 2009. The album is scheduled for release on June 28th and will reportedly feature guest appearances from members of The Wu Tang Clan and Kiss.
