Tuesday, 30 October
Edwyn Collins and Daniel Miller, the founder of Mute, were honoured last night at the Association Of Independent Music Awards. Collins, who received a standing ovation, was not only praised for his own music but for the support he has given other acts as a producer, and some of his former charges, Frankie And The Heartstrings, covered Orange Juice's Rip It Up in his honour. Miller meanwhile was given the Pioneer Award by Domino Records boss Laurence Bell, while his long-term signings Depeche Mode made their tribute via video. Other winners on the night included Alt-J, The Prodigy, Adele, Enter Shikari and 4AD, for Independent Record Label Of The Year. See the site below for the full list of winners.

Lady Gaga and Calvin Harris were involved in a spat on Twitter over whether the DJ had turned down working with the singer, or not. Harris had said he'd said rejected a collaboration causing Gaga to respond: "Seems to be trendy lately to talk shit about Lady Gaga when your albums/singles drop." Peace was restored when Harris insisted it was Gaga's label who had been in touch and he remained a fan. Phew...
