The MOJO awards

I’m surprised to see the Manic Street Preachers, Dinosaur Jr and the Fall are the key honourees at the MOJO awards.

I would have expected to see Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen representing the old guard, maybe Mark Knopfler and the Beastie Boys for a bit of 80s action, with Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson and Pink for the present day.

I mean, I’m more Jewish than James Bradfield, J Mascis and Mark E Smith, and I’m not even eligible to make aliyah (well, unless my dad converts ‘back’ or I marry my ex, neither of which seem especially likely).

And yeah, I know Tim Westwood isn’t black, but all the other MOBO winners were…

    Oh, and Zarif.

    I’m starting to wonder if you’re inadvertandly onto something here. Award shows are money for old rope, after all.
