No Age beaten by Lisbon club bouncers

Deans On its early single, "Dead Plane," the local avant-punk group No Age told a foe that "I don't want to fight you." The band unfortunately didn't get that option Tuesday night on tour in Lisbon, where according to the band's blog, a group of bouncers jumped two members and friend after they tried to enter a nightclub.

The band tells it like this -- Singer/drummer Dean Spunt tried to get into a Lisbon nightspot, only to be told at the door that the club didn't want any "English" inside. Spunt tried to talk to the doorman, when bouncers descended and did a number on him, keyboardist William Kai Strangeland Menchaca and sound tech Scott Cornish.

The band has photos of the aftermath. All at Pop & Hiss wish them a speedy recovery and hope they'll use these photos on a flier someday.
