Klaxons in fancy dress – Friday fun

Time-wasting fun starts here

We’ve just found out that Klaxons are planning to wear fancy dress for the Big Gig taking place after the Shockwaves NME Awards on February 28.

We’ve no idea exactly what garbs the band are going to don, but the news has inspired us to start thinking of bands as costumes to waste time until the pub opens.

My Morning Dinner Jacket, Arctic Monkey Suit, Co-Tweed And Cambria, Hard Black Tie, System Of A Clown Suit, Cumber Band Of Horses, that’s the kind of stuff we’ve been coming up with.

So head over to the NME Office Blog now and have a go.
