Let's go mad fer it on Valentine's Day 2018

Yesterday (November 29th), NME announced that Liam Gallagher will be next year’s recipient for the Godlike Genius Award at the V05 NME Awards at Brixton Academy on February 14, 2018. Liam will swagger through some absolute bangers at the show, which is sure to leave us trying to piece out tiny minds back together afterwards.

His first solo album, ‘As You Were’, is an absolute belter, he’s never been on such fantastic form as an interviewee and we are 100% certain that Brixton Academy will never be the same again. As we await this biblical event, let’s take a look at all 23 previous winners of the gong, which has been awarded to some of music’s biggest pioneers.
