The Wildhearts last night received the Spirit of Independence accolade at the Kerrang! Awards in London.
Speaking of his heartfelt gratitude for the award, Ginger said; “This is the award that really means something. Keeping music independent has always been really important for us as musicians and as fans of music, and never has this support been needed more than right now. The music industry is finally crumbling under the weight of its own self importance, but music has been suffering for years because of major labels, and because musicians are often afraid to go it alone. Do it yourself, it’s much easier than you think. And
thank you, Kerrang!, for supporting independent music.”
CJ added; “I feel like I’ve grown up in the pages of Kerrang! and so this feels very cool. And about time too.!”
