Muse, Kings Of Leon, Blur, Franz Ferdinand and Blondie - Friday 22nd August 2008

* Kings Of Leon, MGMT AND Muse AMONG EARLY NME PRIZEWINNERS MUSE, KINGS OF LEON and MGMT were the early winners at the Shockwave NME Awards in London on Wednesday night (25Feb09). Muse claimed the Best Live Band prize, Kings of Leon the Best Album award for Only by the Night and MGMT were named Best New Band. Oasis grabbed the pre-event headlines after the Gallagher brothers Liam and Noel and their band snagged seven nominations. They were winless as WENN went to press. But it was a great night for Oasis' former chart rivals Blur, who staged a low-key comeback at the NME Awards, held at London's Brixton Academy, just weeks after announcing reunion tour plans. They weren't the only early live highlight - Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand wowed the NME Awards crowd with a rendition of Blondie's Call Me. The band was joined onstage by colourful singer La Rue.
