Australian rocker AZARIA BYRNE turned Saturday night's (20Mar10) PIXIES show in Melbourne into a bloody mess after colliding with a bandmate's guitar.
The Art frontman, whose band is supporting The Pixies in Australia, completed his set with blood pouring from a head wound after guitarist KJ smacked him with her axe onstage.
Byrne, the on/off boyfriend of The Veronicas star Jess Origliasso, tells the Sydney Daily Telegraph, "We were playing our third song and I went over to rock out with KJ and she didn't see me there. Her bass clipped me and gashed my head.
"I was pouring blood all over the stage."
Paramedics stitched up the gash following the band's performance.
