ShockWaves NME Awards star hospitalised twice in a night

High drama on the Kaiser Chiefs' table

The Cribs singer Ryan Jarman has been hospitalised twice after an incident at the ShockWaves NME Awards.

Jarman threw himself onto the Kaiser Chiefs table after being handed an award for Best Live Band – despite not actually winning it.

Guest presenter Peter Hook noticed Franz Ferdinand were unable to make the ceremony at the London Hammersmith Palais, and decided to hand the award to the Kaiser Chiefs instead.


In turn, they announced The Cribs should get it, at which point Ryan came forward and threw himself onto the table – landing on the glasses and bottles that were on it. He went to hospital and had stitches, but insisted on returning to the party.

When he did get back, he went AWOL, and then another ambulance was called when he was eventually found and was seen to be bleeding.

An eyewitness told NME.COM: “He threw himself onto the table, and it was apparent he needed treatement. He had stitches, and came back to continue the party. But after about ten minutes in the pub someone called an ambulance.”

A spokesperson for the band told NME.COM the singer had been discharged at around 5am, and should make a full recovery.
