Oasis Tipped For Top Gong In Confused Nme Awards

by | 30 January 2007

OASIS have been named among the top bands in the country by the NME, which has nominated the ageing Manchester rockers for its Best British Band title.

But the Madchester lads have a fair bit of competition from KASABIAN, ARCTIC MONKEYS, PETE DOHERTY's BABYSHAMBLES and MUSE, with the winners announced at the NME Awards on March 1st.

There are, however, a few contradictions in the nominations, revealing a certain amount of fickleness in the music industry.

LILY ALLEN, for instance, is up for Best Solo Artist and Sexiest Woman, but also Worst Dressed and Worst Album, while indie rockers THE KOOKS are up for Best New Band and also Worst Album.

Both RAZORLIGHT and lead singer JOHNNY BORRELL have come in for a bashing from the NME, with Borrell nominated for Villain of the Year and Worst Dressed and the band up for Worst Album and Worst Band.

Meanwhile, fans of OASIS and KASABIAN who are unconcerned with awards and more interested in the groups will be able to get a close look at their guitars in a special exhibition at the Harrods store in Knightsbridge.

The collection, called Harrods Rocks, will also feature rare and iconic guitars from THE EDGE, BRIAN JONES, KEITH RICHARDS and MARC BOLAN, and runs from February 2nd.
