A rental truck filled with equipment belonging to arty New York pop band Cibo Matto was stolen in Brooklyn, N.Y., Friday night (Aug. 6) or Saturday morning, a representative of their management company said. It was the third reported theft of truckloads of equipment from New York art-rock bands in a month. In July, thieves in Orange, Calif., and Vancouver, British Columbia, stole trucks filled with customized and vintage equipment from Sonic Youth and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, respectively. Cibo Matto lost two basses, two guitars, two keyboards, a sampler, a drum kit, a vintage Roland drum machine and other gear in the theft, according to Rod Marsden of Manage This. Marsden said Cibo Matto will perform in Washington, D.C., Tuesday using new, rented and borrowed equipment.
