    NME Turn On Coldplay

    Kaiser Chiefs, Oasis, Franz and Bloc Party amongst the nominations

     

    After weeks of number crunching your votes the nominations for the ShockWaves NME Awards 2006 can finally be revealed... and Coldplay have been dumped by NME fans.

    Leading the way on the shortlist are the Kaiser Chiefs, who have bagged nominations in key categories Best British Band, Best Album, Best Live Band, Best Track, Best Video, Best Website and Best DVD.

     

    "Obviously we're very pleased," said the band's drummer Nick Hodgson after learning of his band's nominations. "It all sounds brilliant. It's great to be up for the album and live awards. It means people appreciate what you do."

     

    With the polls now open so you can vote for the final results, Hodgson added he was looking forward to the February 23 ceremony. "I hope people vote for us because we've never won anything we've been nominated for before," he explained.

     

    However the Kaisers will face stiff competition in every category with the likes of Oasis, Franz Ferdinand, The Strokes and the Arctic Monkeys all picking up nominations.
