JARVIS COCKER got all gameshow host on the London crowds last night at theNME Awardsopening the show with his own version of Catchphrase: an arctic looking scene and some monkeys… well, we can’t think what that might be.

The crowd at Brixton Academy might have been a little confused but they promptly forgot as soon as they got a bit of booze down their necks.  

The cast of the Mighty Boosh took out Best DVD release, Muse beat Arctic Monkeys, Biffy Clyro, Kasabian and Oasis for Best British Band and Rage Against The Machine were deemed Hero of the Year for their chart-topping efforts over the Christmas period… all resulting in royalties directed to a charity and a free thank you concert for happy fans in London.
