I have my voting form for this year's awards.  The powers that be have added two new awards - best foreign band and best lyricist.  I like these two new awards.

Since our vocalist is in America and our guitarist is in Sweden, I think that might count...

It's worse than that (Jim), they're going to let him become and American.

And Leon considers himself Italian.

I'll be interested in seeing who wins that lyricist award - the only person who won't is Andy Tillison as he's sponsoring it.  I suspect Steve Reed or Clive Nolan.  But honestly, there are so many people who deserve it.

I predict (and really hope) that Tina Booth will win (the Best Female Vocalist) award.

The CRS Awards have traditionally never been a wholly accurate gauge of true acknowledgment more of a rally/tally of the artists' fan base...I may have to agree with RobH's predicted outcome here re lyricist and maybe add FISH into the runners mix too

But Steve Reed is the worst lyricist in the whole entire world... worse than both PJ and Duncan.

And who are the Beatles? I mean, who is Steve Reed, and can I get a sample of his alleged awful lyrics?

Unfortunately, true.  But, let's be honest - they are asking the likes of me to vote for Best Guitarist.  I have absolutely no way of judging who is the "best" and I'm hardly competent to make the judgement.  All it can mean, is which guitarist makes the sounds that I enjoy listing to the most.

The alternative is to get try to get the wise and the good to decide for us.

I do like these awards as they are the only ones that the fans vote for and cannot be rigged by bands mobilising their fanbase.

Since I'm in the mood, I'm going to play the prediction game:

Male Vocalist       Moon Safari (all of them)
Female Vocalist   Tina Booth
Guitarist              Chris Fry
Bass                   Moo
Keys                   Clive Nolan/ Mike Varty/ Andy Tillison/ Rob Reed (it could be almost anyone except Jem)
Drums                 Hen
Album                 27 Club (Magenta)
Track                   Pearl (27Club (Magenta))
Lyrics                  Steve Reed
New Band            Sound of Contact
Foreign Band       Moon Safari
Band                   Mostly Autumn
Unsug Hero          Summer's End

This is not who I'm going to vote for, of course.  I'm definitely voting for Tinyfish as the best new band for a start.

He is the lyricist from Magenta.

Not sure that is actually true Rob, the only caveat is that all voters have to be CRS subscribers...still does not stop fan base rigging IMO
