Shockwaves NME Awards 2010 - The Maccabees Soundcheck As We Count Down The Final Hour

The NME team are here, crammed into the traditional shoebox in a musty corner of the O2 Academy Brixton, and there's less than an hour to go. We Are Scientists are lurking, ready to attack hapless celebs with their surreal interrogation style (they won't reveal what they have planned but going by last year it should be worth watching).

Meanwhile, news is coming in that practically every performer (Marina, Kasabian and a special guest) is ill. Not The Maccabees, though, who are soundchecking with gusto.
