The Jim Jones Revue For Mojo Honours List Ceremony
The most respected of all music magazine awards ceremonies, the much anticipated 2010 nominations for the annual MOJO Awards will be announced that evening.
Raising the roof and breaking their one-London-show-per-year tradition, space rock legends Hawkwind have also been confirmed to perform. The five, public voted, best-of-the-year categories are Best Album, Best Live Act, Breakthrough Act, Best Compilation and Song Of the Year.
The winners of The 2010 MOJO Honours List will be announced at the ceremony, attended by legends of music and unsung heroes, as well as a host of contemporary talent, on Thursday, June 10th, at The Brewery in London. MOJO's editor-in-chief and awards host Phil Alexander said "While the MOJO Honours List revolves around the concept of rewarding career-long achievements, we are equally proud to support the very best in new music. This year's nominees will reflect that and are bound to offer a suitable antidote to the glut of pre-processed pop that's out there right now. Having Hawkwind and the Jim Jones Revue perform is an honour in itself and reflects the magazine's ethos of championing music that's built to last."
The MOJO Honours List nominations launch is a celebration of the wide range of spectacular, timeless music to feature in MOJO magazine every month and takes place via a free to attend evening session in the heart of London at the HMV Oxford Street store, in what has now become a hugely anticipated annual fixture. Previous acts that have played the launch include Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, Rufus Wainwright, Kasabian, The Fall, Teenage Fanclub, Elbow and Roy Harper. Hawkwind and the Jim Jones Revue now join that illustrious list.\
The Jim Jones Revue has now confirmed three US performance for New York and New Jersey this July, to coincide with the Stateside release of their self-titled debut album.
