"One warm fall morning in 2013,
while most people in NYC were just trying to get to work,
two unidentified members of NY/NJ noise-cult SPREADERS,
allegedly under the influence of LSD,
boarded the Roosevelt island sky tram in mid-town Manhattan
and rode the loop back and fourth, essentially taking the tram hostage. Forcing all the passengers and the tram attendant out of the car, they recorded every sound the tram made on portable cassette machines as the tram looped from island to island. 2 hours passed before port authority officials stopped the Skytram and forcibly removed the two. no arrested were made"
