The Fly Awards, set to take place at The Forum in Fabruary 2014 are shaping up to be absolutely massive, with The Horrors and Thurston Moore confirmed to appear!
The Horrors are to pick up a gong for Outstanding Artistry, hosted by War Child. Ben Knowles, Director of Fundraising at War Child said of The Horrors’ award,
“War Child believe the best music can change not only people’s mood but people’s lives. We are proud that The Horrors will be receiving the Outstanding Artistry Award in our name at 2014’s The Fly Awards. A band whose thrillingly uncompromising live shows, three incredible albums and refusal to conform to trends has marked them as an individual talent and seen them inspire devotion among their growing legion of fans. The award is deserved recognition.”
Also attending to pick up an award on the night is Thurston Moore, who is best known for his work with Sonic Youth. He’ll be picking up the ‘Living Legend Award’. The Fly’s editor JJ Dunning said, “Thurston Moore’s work forms a touchstone of modern guitar music.
