Fudge Music Awards - Best International Act 2012 ?

The Ghost Of Fudge

Recommended Posts

'Fudge' have been organising an annual music awards shindig celebrating Aberdeen's diverse range of bands since 2001. The 12th Fudge Music Awards will be hosted at the Moorings Bar on Saturday 11th Febuary, when three bands will play and we'll discover who's won what in front a live, pretty drunken, audience. We encourage you to wear a suit, tuxedo or ballgown. No, I'm not kidding. Really.

You'll be able to vote here on Ab-Music, or via the traditional paper slips available at the Moorings on gig nights. We'll total these figures to arrive at our champions across various categories, who will then have the opportunity to come up onstage during the awards ceremony and thank their fans. It's tounge-in-cheek, don't worry.

We continue the awards process by nominating the best out-of-town-bands that've played a Fudge event this year for 'Best International Act'. This particular category is again an ONLINE ONLY poll, so you won't be able to vote on this one at the gigs.

the TEN TONNE DOZER 'speech' in full:

"My Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is with great pleasure that we accept this award on behalf of the Republic of Shetland, a place where bearded refugees can still find help and succour from the persecution endemic to other, more clean-shaven nations. Indeed, we would like to extend our special thanks to the Fudge Academy for granting us the recognition we have striven for many long years to achieve. Our goal to make large, bearded men the poster-boys of a new generation has taken one step forward with this award.

We would like to thank the people of Aberdeen who stand alone from the rest of your nation's people in listening to our wisdom and, in many cases, embracing the cause with an vigour and enthusiasm that would make their mother's proud.

We would like to thank the people of Shetland - their passion for fiddle-music and never-ending devotion to cover bands has driven us to seek the shores of other nations in our efforts to bring proper music to the masses, thus allowing us to spread our message of hursutism.

We would like to thank our wives and families, without whom we would probably be clean-shaven, respectable members of your society - a fate we consider to be without parallel in ignominy.

Finally we would like to extend our special thanks to the ninjas who police the door of the Moorings Bar in Aberdeen. Just in case."
