The NME Awards

Greetings, how are you all? Hope you all made the most of the snow days? We were extremely lucky in that none of our flights were delayed on the way home from Australia. All the trains and tubes were running, so I made it home in one piece and on time. Once home, a mixture of the snow and jet lag forced me into some sort of hibernation, so it's been a while since my last update. After Australia everyone dispersed to spend a bit of time at home and compose their thoughts in anticipation of what will probably be a very manic 18 months to come. Hopefully there will be a View from... your neck of the woods when the band hit the road again, and it would be really nice to get more interaction with the fans- a bit of guest commentary perhaps? Just come up and collar me. I'll be the one holding a camera.

Thank you for all your comments and emails over the last few weeks. Some of you were a little concerned about my bust up with Alex in the View From The Orange Stage, unfortunately the cameras had stopped rolling for the worst of it, I lost a tooth and Al got a shiner. We had to be pulled apart by the rest of the band and security. We have attempted to reconcile for the sake of the blogs, but rest assured you can cut the tension with a knife.

OK so technically I wasn't at the awards ceremony on Wednesday night... but I did watch some blurry webcam footage of it at home, so I felt a part of the whole event. A big congratulations to the Band, Richard Ayoade, Warp Films, and everyone else who was involved in the production that resulted in bagging the gong for best DVD. Congratulations must also go out to The Last Shadow Puppets for scooping the Best Video Award. TLSP's links with the Monkeys don't just start and finish with Alex; they also share record label, management and lots of the same road crew who all deserve kudos.

The good news is that winning awards isn't the only thing stirring in Monkey's loins, just because they aren't touring at the minute doesn't mean the machine is sitting idle. As of this week they are back on active duty and have returned to a practice room for a couple of weeks. I hope to bring you a video View from... narrated by Matthew from these very rehearsal sessions in the next couple of weeks.

See you when I see you.
