Video: Arctic Monkeys Accept Best Live Band At NME Awards 2014

Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner referenced his controversial Brit Awards speech at the NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas.

Turner made the statement while collecting the Best Live Band award at the O2 Academy Brixton ceremony last night (February 26). It was the first of five awards picked up by the band. The award was presented by Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker, who teased the crowd by saying, "Why would there be a person from Sheffield here?"

Turner said: "Thank you. So, Matthew, as the sun sets on awards season for another year. Just the big two left to go, eh? I'm talking of course about the Oscars… and the NME Awards. That said, I'd like to thank The Academy… I'm sorry, I couldn't resist that one, man."

I think I used all my best shit last week, so thank you very much, I'll see you later.
