Kaiser Chiefs Dedicate Potential Wins To Ordinary Boy

British band KAISER CHIEFS will dedicate any awards they take home from the Brits to THE ORDINARY BOYS singer SAMUEL PRESTON, because his persistence secured them a record contract.

The I PREDICT A RIOT hitmakers are nominated for five gongs including Best Album and Best British Band at tomorrow night's (15FEB06) London ceremony.

And they are adamant it was Preston's belief in their music which convinced record label bosses to give them a break.

Frontman RICKY WILSON says, "It was Preston who convinced his boss at the B-Unique label to sign us.

"Otherwise we might still be unheard of. He went out of his way to help us. Preston pestered and pestered on our behalf because he had faith in us.

"I can't thank him enough - and I'll say so from the stage if I get the chance."
