Muse the daddy?

Muse and Kasabian triumphed at the NME awards last night, Muse going home with best band, and Kasabian with best album. Muse, in classic faux modest style said that winning the award was 'very humbling'.

The Jonas brothers won Worst Band and Album, and unsurprisingly did not make the trip out from LA to the Brixton Academy to claim their award. The night scored disappointingly low on the rock and roll factor (unless you count the Kasabian drummer breaking a wrist), and this follows a low key Brit awards. Sort it out people, you're not paid to be polite and articulate - more buffoonery please.
