    Interesting to see Arcade Fire's Neon Bible in the stormcock top list. It's also up for a Brit as International Album - and AF as Int band. I would love them to take both. AF are stunning live too. And who's up for Best Male Artist - that Newton again! And Editors are nominated as Best British Group - hurrah! That will have made my friend Selfie a happy boy.

    Half back in the drugs thread...I think about smokers outside the hospital doors every time I light up!!! That and why lovely Tom has cut his curls off *sigh*.

    Brits tonight!

    Anyone opening a book on Newton Faulkner tonight then?! I like them all in that category; all are worthy winners imo. Would like to see Arcade Fire scoop one, and Mark Ronson if there's any justice (remember the St Hels pub, Critch!), and of course Editors *sigh*!

    critch Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Aha! Yes, in the sefton! You were slightly distracted at that point - I was trying to talk you out of making Nick do an old people's home tour, and you were singing to yourself. :rofl:

    The sefton, I think last time I was in there was at about 11pm on a saturday in 1996, just got back from wembley after Saints beat bradford in the Challenge Cup final, I remember the landlord putting we are the champions on every 15 mins and encouraging people to stand on chairs and tables singing,...... that was a long night.....
    ah......

    I like their choice of music in there! And that if you bought 2 glasses of wine, you get the rest of the bottle free! But that was before the gig and as Critch didn't want to be seen with an old wino, I lost out on that deal - hahaha!!!

    You couldn't pay me enough to watch that show... Lol.

    (actually that's not true, minimum wage would be plenty!)

    I didn't stay the whole course. Very formulaic: Arctics, Take That and the Poo Pighters grabbing Int Band and Album - no way! But I did think that Dave Grohl is now passing a very close resemblence to our Moth!

    I saw mark ronson and that was about it really, I like mark ronson but it did feel a bit like live karaoke.

    I really really want Amy Winehouse to sort herself out, her voice is fabulous its just such a shame she's so f****** up.

    I have a soft spot for KAte Nash having tracked her down on mysfacespace prior to her siging her deal I feel a part of her career in a strange way, I hope she sticks to her chilled relaxed way and doesn't go down the lily allen, josh stone way of turning into a plonker.

    The Brits - "It's an industry thing". Sorry, waste of time IMO.

    How The Arctic Monkeys have a career I'll never know. Half Man Half Biscuit have been doing much the same thing for years & years without recognition, and they are funnier too.

    Sorry, rant over! :blushing:
