NME Names Vampire Weekend Best New Band
Further proof that with few exceptions--Mojo, Uncut and very little else--the British music press are just a small army of wankers, not even worthy of Spin magazine's lowly and ever-diminishing level of respect and competency: at last night's first annual NME Awards USA, lame-ass New York preppies, Vampire Weekend were named "Best New Band". Ugh. Enough with these posers, already!
