The NME are the future

CASTLE Donington band Late Of The Pier have been nominated for the NME awards for Best New Band, Best Dancefloor Filler and Best Video.
The local lads will battle it out with Glasvegas, White Lies, MGMT and Vampire Weekend for the new band gong.
Their track Bathroom Gurgle will compete with dancefloor fillers by Bloc Party, Crystal Castles, Friendly Fires and Calvin Harris versus Dizzee Rascal, while their Heartbreak video is up against promos by The Last Shadow Puppets, Oasis, Vampire Weekend and Radiohead.
The awards will be handed out at a ceremony at the Brixton Academy in London on February 25.


  1. Looking forward to this year's NME Awards, it'll be interesting to see how many Oasis win, they've been nominated for 7 awards this year.

  2. Haven't they got nominations for both best and worst band? Therefore they'll miss out on at least one you'd think.
    MGMT will do well - the NME lurvvve them.

  3. News just in - Late Of The Pier didn't win a bean.
    That'll teach them to go touring in America when the awards ceremony is taking place.
