just an excuse to dish out awards to overpaid w*nkers icon_twisted.gif

Did Gerrard release an album this year?

To be fair to the Brits they are simply following the line set by the entire British music industry - it is targeted at people between the ages of 8 and 16 with the odd token gesture thrown in for the 'older' generation.

Didn't watch it, I just can't, it lacks any credibility whatsoever, a point proven by Oasis being given a contribution to muic award.

However Artic Monkeys wining best album and best band is one of the few correct decisions by the Brits in a long time. Having never seen Muse live I can't comment on that award so I will accept they deserved it but having got copies of both 'Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not' and 'Black Holes & Revelations' for me there really was no contest - 'Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not' is a far superior album.

Phhh.. to create Blackholes Muse just spent a week listening to Talking Heads albums and decided 'Let's do that but make it sound louder'

Ive havent really got a problem with Oasis winning what they did, like it or lump it for two albums they really had something and meant a lot to a lot of people (however much of a dull greatest hits touring package they have turned into these days)

But, please, please dont get me started on Muse.... chainsaw.gif

Oasis created one great album (Definitely Maybe) and one OK album (Morning Glory) - the rest was pap.. I just don't see how that can be an outstanding contribution to music. Is that all you need these days, one and a half albums of music which isn't actually original.

I just think that when you give Outstanding Achievement awards (in any ceremony, not just joke ones like the Brits) to people of the calibre of Oasis it means that the ones awarded to the real greats (i.e. people with longevity who made a lasting difference to music) are totally watered down.

I Agree with that completely,

what i want to know is why do the organisers of the Brits insist on giving the Outstanding Achievement award every year? surely if it meant something it would only be given out from time to time? i can see it happening a few years from now, they'll be giving it to girls aloud or some other manufactured utter pap.

Needless to say i didn't actually watch it icon_cool.gif

I agree with your sentiments Loz, however, when you think of the 1990's; you think 'Oasis'. They pretty much laid the soundtrack for the decade.

That's worth recognising surely? Even if it is a 'Brit' award...

I agree that Oasis have only made 2 worthwhile albums and that that cannot be considered an 'outstanding contribution' but they were in their pomp massive and hugely influential and paved the way for a lot of todays guitar bands (however pap many of them are), but they defintley made a difference and one that is worthy of some recognition.

Dont get me wrong i am not sticking up for them i am just trying to see it from the organisers side as to why they were chosen.

After all they follow other great winners such as Eurythmics and Duran Duran!

For the 'Girls on Film' video alone Duran Duran deserved it icon_wink.gif

Seriously though I agree totally with 2k - if there is no worth winner - don't award it.

Once you have caught up with people who merit the award for contributions to music from way before the award was in place then I would imagine it is something that should only be awarded on average about once every 5 years.

Loz, did you notice that Russell Brand made his entrance to 'Sister Im A Poet'

?

I didn't actually see the awards - I just caught the last 15 minutes.

'Sister I'm a Poet' is possibly the most criminally neglected song in the history of mankind!! It is right up there as one of my Mozza favourites.

I can easily see Russell Brand using it as his intro music.
