Reminder: NME awards on Channel 4 in the UK

"Just had a quick flick through the Channel 4 listings for next week. On Friday 27th February there are two shows featuring the NME Shockwaves Awards.
At 19:30 on '4 Music' there is a 45 minute programme called "T4 at the Shockwaves NME Awards" and on Channel 4 23:35-1:10 there is a longer programme called "Shockwaves NME Awards" which seems to be a run through of the Brixton Academy awards giving." (Thanks Beau)

Update: Friday I'm In Love & Just Like Heaven from the show.

  2. Thanks for posting this - I was wondering if it would be televised in the UK. Looks like Sky+ will get a bashing as I will be in recovery post O2

  18. dbc--Sorry to see that you had to experience some unpleasantness during the show. At least you were still able to enjoy yourself!

    It's Over is awesome live!!! And I still like calling it BRDB.

    Aaron--That's so typical with those Tv shows!!! Only play one or two of the songs and not the whole set.

    some parts of the video, the camera should have just stayed focused on the band dang it

    must say, the band looks so young and really energized!!

  24. I watched the NME show on Channel 4 yesterday night. I don't know whether anybody has picked up Robert's speech on Wednesday night.

    There was a long applause and most nominees stood up as he received the award. He said something like: "It's always weird to come up here [on stage] when it's not for singing, but thank you very much NME for giving us this [award] we are flattered and surprised and pleased to receive it. I am here [on the award stage] on my own but I would like to thank the band, Simon, Jason and Porl for sticking with me over these 33 years. And I would also like to thank all those who over the years have come to the shows, liked us and dug us: you made it all worthwhile, and if you had half the fun we had, then it's been more than worthwhile. Thank you."

  25. andrewv127... well there was numerous things ,, the worst of which were some racist idiots - in cure tshirts\(quite probably 6th formers )giving this black kiddie stick beside me ..luckily im 6'2 and sixteen stone so once i got involved they fucked off ..or so i thought coz the little cunts went n got a steward to try n lob me out ..didnt work though obviously

    but how somewhere like the o2 can allow in people wearing BNP buttons i'll never fuckin understand

  26. Ahhh DBC thats too bad man. How on earth a Cure gig attracts dickheads like that is beyond me. It doesn't take too much digging around to see that the band are massive supporters of Amnesty which stands up against shit like that.

    Let's hope theres a better crowd for the May gig (if we keep spreading that rumour it may happen...)

  28. DBC, good for you for standing up and doing the right thing. That shit is unbelievable.

  29. Sounds just terrible DBC! What a bunch of idiots you had to deal with!

    Thanks for the video Craig & Aaron! The band looks great & it's cool to see a lot of the fans having fun! What a night that must have been!
