-- if you don't like music(k), we don't like you --

Tonight was a pretty big night for us as we got to go to THE party of 2010 so far. Tickets were being sold outside for literally hundreds of pounds and extra security had been hired to stop liggers from storming the place. Once inside, the VIP crowd was packed full of talent, the wine was flowing and the conversations were full of amazing anecdotes. Yep, Musick was at the 2010 Butchers Dog Best Meat award nominations evening and as you can imagine things got pretty messy. Weirdly, at the same time, the Brit nominations list was announced and here it is (we've highlighted who we think should win):
