'Godlike' Gallagher gets NME honour

Noel Gallagher has been declared a "Godlike Genius" at the NME Awards.

The former Oasis frontman took to the stage at the Brixton Academy to collect his honour.

The magazine's editor Krissi Murison said he was "a man who has written more anthems in the last two decades than anyone else".

The audience saw tributes from Paul Weller, Kinks frontman Ray Davies and comic Russell Brand who said the songwriter was "a hero to a generation".

Also picking up an honorary award were Pulp who were recognised for their Outstanding Contribution to Music. Frontman Jarvis Cocker dedicated the award to "all the people who came to see us last year".

Other big winners included Florence + The Machine who won Best Solo Artist, beating Adele to the award, despite admitting "it's never been clear whether I am a solo artist". The singer also won Best Track for Shake It Out.

Kasabian opened the show and won Best British Band with the Foo Fighters picking up the international equivalent. The Leicester rockers dedicated their award to Davy Jones and burst into an impromptu version of The Monkees theme on stage.

The night included performances by Florence + The Machine, The Horrors and The Vaccines who were voted Best New Band.

Arctic Monkeys won the accolade of Best Live Band. Best Album went to The Horrors for Skying and Katy B's Broken Record was named Dancefloor Anthem.

Host Jack Whitehall saw his own show, student comedy Fresh Meat, named Best TV Show.
