Well last night saw the passing of the 2009 Mojo Music Awards and over this morning’s croissants and freshly squeezed um bongo we cheered with delight to learn that FLEET FOXES, WHITE LIES and JOHNNY MARR all picked up gongs last night.
In the words of one maligned Alvy Singer: ‘All they do in this town is give awards. Best Fascist Dictator: Adolph Hitler’. Hmm..we have been watching Annie Hall too much, clearly, however in this case, the awarding of awards certainly went to very worthy recipients (and no fascists):
Fleet Foxes picked up the ‘Best Live Act’ award – Anyone privy to their Roundhouse shows in February (or elsewhere, for that matter) can attest to the fact that Fleet Foxes live is arguably better than christmas.
White Lies bagged the ‘Mojo Breakthrough Award’. Brilliant news.
Johnny Marr received the award for ‘Classic Songwriter’ from former Suede guitarist, Bernard Butler. Johnny said he was ‘very honoured’. No, Johnny, we with ears are honoured.
Well done to all. We’re thrilled.
