I was going to watch it, but it would have been a litany of "Who's that? Who are they?" from me so I didn't see the point. The days when Jarvis Cocker made it fun are a long time ago. And I also have vague memories of KLF and Suede turning in performances that would make parents tut because they seemed genuinely rebellious.

Maybe it's just my age, but I do get the impression it's incredibly sanitised now. The only category I'm vaguely interested in is lifetime achievement - who got that this year?



I was going to watch it too but I then realized that I don't want to watch an awards show which is predicated on sales figures than artistic merit, and slamming a car door on your hand is more fun than watching that.

Emeli Sandé


I might be out of the loop here, but it isn't she like a relatively new artist?

I don't think they had a fellowship - there was a contribution thing for War Child. And a special 'you sold a lot so we'll give you an award but no one in their right mind thinks you're any less shit' special award for One Direction.

I have a special award for One Direction, it's in my pit of poisonous snakes, black widow spiders and alligators.

Come and get it at any time, you bunch of mewling little sacks of shit.

If I named my bowel movements after a book, it would be called War & Peace.

Well if this is the theme, it's definitely Murakami's 'what i think about when i think about running' at the moment. A weekend of drinking nothing but Brandy & Baileys has taken its toll

OK, try another way - when watching the Olympics opening ceremony and that really impressive set piece with Abide with Me, did you not think then 'I don't know who that is'? This is her.

Or, when watching the Olympics did you not get annoyed when a random woman turned up every other minute and started warbling?

I got annoyed because she came to the city I live in to sing during the procession of the Olympic Torch. Basically infront of my flat. Trying to get home from work that night was a fucking nightmare - instead of doing the usual A to B route, I went from A through to Z and back to B.

I JUST WANTED MY DINNER, DAMMIT.

I'm sort of with you matty, I wouldn't have a notion who she was either if it weren't for her awful performance at the Olympics. I also haven't a clue who that Ben Howard is either.

Did Ben Howard get a Brit? He's one of the few current artists that I know of and actually love his music. It's beautiful, I would certainly recommend a listen.

My favourite Ben Howard song, clicky.

I'm bit of a mixed bag when it comes to music - my main interest is 60s and 70s, mostly motown, but of current day music I seem to like male folk/indie artists, like Ben Howard and James Vincent McMorrow.
