Members of the punk/grindcore band Blood Soaked Street of Social Decay were arrested on Saturday after they burnt posters of Prayut Chan-o-cha at จะ4ปีแล้วนะ, an event marking the four-year anniversary of the 2014 coup. Thrash metal band Killing Fields also performed at the free concert, which took place at the 14 October '73 Memorial in Bangkok. (The event's full title includes the insult ไอ้สัตว์, though this was self-censored on the poster.) The show's organisers were also arrested, though no-one was charged.
