Dan In The Front Row Awards

Awards ceremonies always spark a lot of debate, as i watched The Grammys the other night i found myself getting really annoyed at all the awful music winning again and again. The musical taste of mass America is terrible; tame indie by numbers (Fun, Black Keys) boring, samey R n B and hip hop (Rihanna, Jay Z) and pop music so bad it could be used to counter terrorism (Taylor Swift). Our own Brit Awards always leave me despairing at the sort of music these ceremonies champion, Jessie J and Ed sheeran, Take That, JLS! Oh please fuck off. I think the only thing that is going to help the state of awards ceremonies is if i start my own ones. so here it is;
