sold out NME awards show is over. It was a very awkward night with comedic Russell Kane off to a shaky start, some technical difficulties and a lot of talking into his ear ‘I can’t here you’…we all heard him. Biffy Clyro opened up the awards with a bang and the Scottish rock group went on to win ‘Best British Band’. Florence was up there twice (what was she wearing?!) collecting two awards. Foals stonked the audience with ‘Inhaler’ after collecting the well deserved award for best track. The Cribs raised the roof with an epic performance of ‘Mirror Kisses’ and came away with Outstanding Contribution To Music, Ryan didn’t end up in hospital this time…as far as we’re aware anyway.

New band Palma Violets took best new band, these guys are already getting the haters throwing their two pence in…WHY? We for one are well chuffed they won. Miles Kane and Paul Weller collaborated, Justin Young joined Ronnie Wood onstage with Johnny Mar to cover The Clash and well, the newly crowned Godlike Genius Johnny Marr played How Soon Is Now. Nothing else really matters after that.

Here’s some really crap images…
