The Ghost Of Fudge

BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT 2010 - Fudge Music Awards

Recommended Posts

The Fudge Awards are an annual celebration of the best bands Aberdeen has to offer. We'll be dishing out the shiny awards and inviting the winning acts to come up onstage and rant drunkenly into the mic at The Moorings on Saturday 6th February. As well as the actual awards ceremony, we'll have three fabulous bands playing too.

Since, against all expectations, this show will mark a decade of debuachary for the Fudge Awards, we'll be donating all money raised to our attempt to drive a shitty little car to Ulaanbataar in the Mongol Rally 2010 (see elsewhere for details). Woo hoo!

SO! ... Let's get down to business.

THE FUDGE AWARDS - BEST INTERNATIONAL ACT 2010

This award celebrates the cream of non-local bands who've played for us over the last year. Usually, the list would be short. Six names or so.

But there's been too many great bands passing through Fudge gigs this year, so I decided to nominate the best fourteen. Because I can. Ha ha!

This category won't be appearing on the paper voting slips available at Fudge gigs, so consider this an internet free for all.

Why would you want to be able to vote for more than one? That's retarded. Surely you vote for your favourite because you want them to win. Being able to vote twice makes a mockery of democracy and everything our ancestors fought and died for.

Maybe they were going for some kind of Mixed Member Proportional system...

ASIWYFA were pretty good for the six songs for me, but I'm not voting for them because of that guitarists stupid SWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH pedal. Seriously, at the end of every part... SWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOSH.

ASIWYFA.

I wasn't massively convinced with their metal/techy segment to proceedings, but when they focused more on dynamics and a bit of sheer emotion, they came to the fore with some really nicely structured pieces.

Decent band, like. I really like how they've gone about things and their DIY approach. :up:

I reckon a shit laod of people would also vote for Estel, if they had actually seen them. Live they were just phenomenal. I got an album, and it's not a touch on them live.

This Online Poll will close on Saturday morning. These votes will be added to those cast in person over the past few weeks (and tomorrow night) at the Moorings.

The Fudge Awards occur next Saturday at the Moorings (Saturday 6th February). All profits towards our charity drive to Mongolia: teamFUDGE
