Brit sandwich

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):

  1. I think this list proves that music is officially dead. Not one worthy winner in any category. Except maybe Lady gaga. What toss. The Brits doth anger me every year. Except that year Belle and Sebastian won, that was quite fun.

  2. Have you seen the Brits Best album of the last 30 years list? (and this isn't a joke):

    BRITs' Album Of 30 Years

    Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head (2003)

    Dido - No Angel (2002)

    Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms (1987)

    Duffy - Rockferry (2008)

    Keane - Hopes and Fears (2005)

    Oasis - (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1996)

    Phil Collins - No Jacket Required

    Sade - Diamond Life (1985)

    The Verve - Urban Hymns (1998)

    Travis - The Man Who (2000)

  3. what? no white ladder?

  4. That is the most depressing list i have ever seen. Duffy?!! Are you fucking kidding me?
