Future Sailors Wins

The Mighty Boosh have triumphed once again at the NME Awards, winning Best Live DVD for their Future Sailors Tour.



The whole crazy gang were in town, showing a united front for the first time in months, for the star-studded event at Brixton Academy last night.  Despite stiff competition from the likes of Kings Of Leon, Nirvana, The Killers and cult comedy Flight Of The Conchords, the Boosh took home a trophy for the fourth year in a row.

Noel Fielding also performed, as we suspected, with indie rockers Kasabian – though whilst the latter won a couple of awards themselves, Fielding’s nominations in various other catagories (including best tv show for Never Mind The Buzzcocks) were not so lucky.

You can watch the show on Channel 4 tomorrow night at 11:25pm, and there’s an extra 30 minute show featuring material cut from the initial broadcast plus red-carpet interviews on Saturday morning at 11:10am.

Check out the NME website for further pics and videos from the event, and much, much more – and don’t forget to check out the magazine next Tuesday with its in-depth awards review.

Hearty congratulations to the Boosh from all here at The Velvet Onion.
