Best Artist / Band Hijinks

BA Johnston

His website alone, with its motto (“A fat, tired chud”), Mario Bros. icons, trucker hats and handlebar moustaches, is entertaining enough. You want endearing? Check just the title of his latest recording, Call Me When Old and Fat is the New Young and Sexy. But to get the full effect you need to see the live show, in which all the (fried) flavours mix together for a buffet of awesome. Except now you can’t because he moved back to Hamilton. Hope you went to his birthday party.

1st runner-up: The Crimson Tides, 2nd runner-up (tie): Jon Epworth, Die Brucke
