A music blog from Ireland.
Results of the Irish Music Video Awards rolled in on Friday night to resounding applause. Congratulations go to the big winner on the night, director Eoghan Kidney, who bagged three awards including Best Director, Video of the Year for Valerie Francis‘ Punches and Best Original Concept with Fight Like Apes’ Something Global.
Other winners on the night included Best Live Video to And So I Watch You From Afar for Set Guitars To Kill, Best Dance Video for Le Galaxie‘s You Feel The Fire and Best Production/Special Effects went to Sam Boyd for We Are Men by Cap Pas Cap.
Bizarre moment of the night came in the result of the public poll which awarded Best Newcomer to Bowlegged. Maybe I place too much stock in the Internet but it was an online poll and the band with 171 MySpace friends were not the winners I expected. Who-and-what-the-fuck?
One of the judges on the night, Nialler9 has the full results + vids over on his blog.
