Best New Band: it's such a hotly-contested category there's two awards for fledgling acts at the Shockwaves NME Awards these days: the Best New Band (which Bombay Bicycle Club picked up earlier) and the Philip Hall Radar Award (named after the man behind the Manic Street Preachers and The Stone Roses), which was just presented to The Drums.

The Drums

MGMT and The Big Pink won last year, Glasvegas and The Enemy the year before, and Klaxons and (ahem) The Twang before that.

Everyone has their own top tip though, so who's yours? Who will be taking to the stage this time next year?
