Scotch Snap: Kerrang awards, Mitch Winehouse and the best band in Britain

Award ceremonies, oh how you make sarcasm easy.

Liam Gallagher says that the Stone Roses reforming is like Quadraphenia. I agree. Mitch Winehouse wants to make a giant bronze statue to Amy. This is not a good idea.

Releases shown: Cheryl Cole - Call My Name (out now), Usher - Looking 4 Myself (out now), Future of the Left - The Plot Against Common Sense (out now), Miaoux Miaoux - Better for Now (from Light of the North, out now)

*Musical note: the Scotch Snap technically consists of a stressed (ie on the beat) sixteenth note, or semiquaver, followed by a dotted eighth note or quaver. Usually dotted rythms have the longer note first; it is that reversal of expectation that makes the snap so distinctive. It is a key rhythmic signature of Scottish traditional music.
