A Treforest resident is up in arms at the latest graffiti that has hit his community.
Jonathan Bishop, 26, who runs the Clean Treforest campaign, is angered at the graffiti advertising a rock groupâ€™s website that has sprung up in his community, including on a wall near where he lives in Cliff Terrace.
The graffiti advertises the website of rock group, Red Star Rebels, and Mr Bishop believes that visitors to the groupâ€™s website are to blame. He said: â€œThe website has a form for fans to sign up to promote the band and encourages them to send in their artwork for display on the siteâ€.
Paul Mead of the Red Star Rebels said it was normal practice for fans to promote the band in the streets, “As a band trying to encourage a growing fanbase we rely on the help of a street team to promote us”, he said, “Whilst we provide stickers and flyers and other promotional items, it has come to our attention that some individuals have taken the promotion a little further than we expected as in this case.”
Mr Bishop has reported the matter to the police and is now calling on the band to do something to clean up the graffiti their street teams have left. He said: “It is not good enough for the band to simply acknowledge the problem, they should arrange for these eyesores to be removed from the walls of Treforest.”
