F4AF's singer Matt - who I saw outside Gloucester Road tube station the other day; he's one short fella - got all excited, like a little boy with a toy fire engine or something like that, and said: "The award is the most metal thing you've ever seen. It's a skull head with a rather sexy looking cloak, a snake on the bottom and the metal sign in a bony hand."
F4AF are about the least metal thing I've ever seen, so quite how they picked up the most metal award going is puzzling. Ah well... some bands played too but they were all rubbish READ SOMETHING ELSE.
