MOJO HONOURS LIST: THE SPEECHES!

Here’s the Arcade Fire receiving their Best Live Act award at the MOJO Honours List ceremony that took place on Monday night. Click the MORE button below to see The Only Ones, Joe Boyd and Seasick Steve similarly honoured. And return later for more speeches and interviews.

Legendary producer-fixer-raconteur Joe Boyd popped by to pick up an honour. He produced Nick Drake, Pink Floyd and R.E.M. and did the sound at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, thereby midwifing the electric Dylan. Makes our CVs look a bit rubbish.
