Music Week

“Has it really come with this?” mused MC Bill Bailey. But don’t worry, he was only dissing the wall full of brand partnerships up for a prize, and that gong went to Google. And we all hate Google anyway, right? Though the mega tech firm did basically pay for dinner as headline sponsors of this year’s Music Week Awards. And that was good beef. Apt I suppose, given the industry’s ongoing beef with the web giant. Anyway, we must stress that Bill loved all you other winners. As do we. One and all. And at least it wasn’t fish for dinner.
