From the starry attendees (Kate Moss, two-fifths of Girls Aloud) to the host (Lauren Laverne), things had got totally glam by 2007. There was a wonderful meeting of minds in the duet between Jarvis Cocker and The Gossip's Beth Ditto, meanwhile a semi Libertines reunion, Lovefoxxx and Simon Reynolds coupled up like Mr and Mrs Nu Rave and some of 'Skins' meeting 'The Mighty Boosh' provided other points of note.
