Godspeed Blast Polaris Prize

Luana Magalhães @ Amplifest 2012

so yes, we are grateful, and yes we are humble and we are shy to complain when we’ve been acknowledged thusly- BUT HOLY SHIT AND HOLY COW- we’ve been plowing our field on the margins of weird culture for almost 20 years now, and “this scene is pretty cool but what it really fucking needs is an awards show” is not a thought that’s ever crossed our minds.

Canadian droning types Godspeed You! Black Emperor have been announced as victors of the 2013 Polaris prize… We miss them… A lot. Check The Quietus for more details.
