Taking place on February 12th at Hammersmith Palais, it was the year in which the new rock revolution had taken over and the likes of Franz Ferdinand, The White Stripes, Jet and the Kings Of Leon ruled the roost.

A reliably cheery Thom Yorke told us “(I’ve been drinking) Wine, but it’s awful!” Meanwhile Caleb Followill urged NME to give a gong to long-dead Velvet Underground chanteuse Nico and Jack White was still referring to Meg as his ‘sister’. Aw, bless.
