Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys Lead 2010 NME Awards Nominations

shockwaveKasabian can add the NME Awards to the growing list of nominations for their album ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum‘ after the record was selected in this year’s Best Album category. The group will face stiff competition from Arctic Monkeys‘ third album ‘Humbug‘ amongst others, while the Sheffield group will also compete with Kasabian in five other categories including Best British Band and Best Live Band.

Despite splitting in August last year, Oasis have been recognised with three nominations – in the Best Video category for their single ‘Falling Down‘, Best Live Event for their eventful shows at Manchester’s Heaton Park last summer and they join Kasabian and Arctic Monkeys with a nod in the Best British Band category. Liam Gallagher’s new Pretty Green range appears to have divided fans, as the singer has been voted in to both the Best Dressed and Worst Dressed sections.

The awards will be handed out at a ceremony at the Brixton Academy on February 24th.
