The Rifles’ trademark hat held to ransom

Band appeal for the safe return of Luke Crowther's trilby

The Rifles have put out an appeal after guitarist Luke Crowther had his hat stolen.

The band have called for the safe return of his Robin Hood-style trilby (pictured) after a fan jumped onstage and ran off with it at a gig at Glasgow Garage on November 7.

The London four-piece have since received a letter from an anonymous source with the hat in a variety of random locations.

“Some crazy fan jumped on stage at the Glasgow Garage and nicked it off me,” Crowther told NME.COM. “The bouncers chased after him, but he got away. I’ve had that hat since the band began.”
