2005 Q Awards Wrap-Up

The annual Q Awards have come and gone, with not many people really showing much interest. Does anybody actually read Q anymore? I don’t believe that I have flipped through the pages of that magazine in a good five years or so. Anyways, some good Britpop snobbery went down, which is definitely worth covering.

The fine folks at XFM attended the event, where they witnessed Liam Gallagher as the eloquent man that we know and love describing Oasis. He said: “I know we’re the best, I know we’re the b*****ks, we look the best, we’re f**king cool, we’re proper, we mean it, all the rest of them just f**king look like… f**king surfers.”

In other Q Awards wackiness, New Order’s Peter Hook accepted the trophy in honor of Joy Division winning the Legend Award. He commented that this was the first awards ceremony he had ever attended sober. He then called Q "a two faced buch of c**ts" for giving them a bad review. Zing!
