Robert’s blog

We had the unexpected honour of receiving the inaugural ‘bands’ band award at the Music Managers Forum and Featured Artist Coalition last week. It happens when you get to our age.

Was made more special to us by the fact that it was presented to us by the great drummer and Pink Floyd maestro, Nick Mason. Then there was a Pink Floyd night on the BBC at the end of the same week..and as I settled in, the lingering tipsy glow of the awards ceremony was replaced by one of immense humility at what I was seeing and hearing.

The unending greatness that is Pink Floyd..a band that still sounds and looks more modern and original than most of today’s brave attempts at experimental and progressive music.

Thanks again to Nick, a true genius.

    The Featured Artists Coalition were delighted to present the Artists’ Artist Award to such an amazing act as Massive Attack. When the video montage showed Unfinished Sympathy, Angel, clips from Protection & Heligoland etc. it reminded people just how influential, original and uniquely British you guys really are.

    Personally, I’m a huge fan of both MA and Floyd, so it was doubly special just to be in the same room. I think I shouted ‘100th Window is my favourite album!’ a bit too loudly in Robert’s ear, though he didn’t seem to notice…
