2008 has been a strange year, and one I’ll generally be glad to see the back of. I guess in global terms it’ll be defined as the year of Obama and the year those gung-ho laissez-faire capitalists decided that actually state intervention is actually a jolly good idea after all.

However musically there have been some great moments so without further ado here are The VPME 2008 Awards.........
