The Brit Awards 2011.


So tonight is the Brit Awards. When I was younger I was always glued to this being into music but as I got older I realised what a bag of shite it is. Me being a musical nerd it all started with around 300 cassette tapes made by me all individually numbered and some with home made covers made by me. A popular series was the “Now thats what Fay calls music volumes” dont know where I got that idea from and the “Music trip” series. All of which were hastily taped from the radio one chart show. Also home made albums consisting of my fave bands made up with a selection of b-sides and 12″ mixes (Ask your parents kids) My fall into musical nerdiness didnt stop there at one point I was keeping my top ten singles and albums hastily jotted down once a week into an exercise book I have robbed from school ! All this leads up to the creme de la creme of musical sadness but what has now become something I am proud to celebrate (who gives a fuck) it is indeed my own Brit awards. After pushing to boat out with the “Now thats what Fay calls music” name my Brit awards were called, wait for it “The music awards” Started in 1988 and now proudly in its 23rd year I can now announce the albums that are nominated for the various awards for 2010. The album doesnt have to technically be out in the year involved but when I discover it. So with the finding of Spotify and thus increasing the amount of music I listen to here is the 2010 shortlist which contains a record amount of albums.
