What happens when you get Damon Albarn, Paul McCartney, Jarvis Cocker and Blondie in the same room? A pretty extraordinary event. Some of the greatest musicians of past and present gathered at the NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas at Brixton Academy last week (February 27). Amidst the excellent performances from Drenge, Blondie, Metronomy, The Horrors and Belle & Sebastian (all of which you can watch here), the heartfelt speeches and flying bottles of Tequila and pizza slices, NME photographers were snapping all the action. Here’s 10 of the most stunning images from the night.
