Prize fighters

Forgive the backslapping, but it's nice to see Buzz among the finalists in the Best Music Press category for the 2020 Cardiff Music Awards, alongside equally worthy nominees God Is In The TV and Minty's Gig Guide. I'm glad to have been a regular contributor over the last few years.

Elsewhere, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard are up for two awards (Best Group and Best Live Act), and while I'm not familiar with all of the Best Album nominees, it'll take something very special indeed to beat KEYS' Bring Me The Head Of Jerry Garcia.

Clwb is surely a shoo-in for Best Independent Venue, and if there's any justice the Moon's Liz Hunt should walk away with either Promoter Of The Year or Best Local Promoter.

I was surprised to see that the Cardiff Psych & Noise Fest has failed to make the shortlist for either Best Festival or Lineup Of The Year, but there's no disputing that Swn's bill was packed full of goodness - likewise Bubblewrap's pre-Christmas tenth birthday party.
