Beastly Bits #62

So much of the rad to get caught up on after a rainy weekend, as obviously the inclement weather forced every contact I've ever made to send new and hot tunes my way.

Biffy Clyro and Marina Diamandis - Many of Horror (live at NME Awards)

Last week, the 2010 NME Awards were held at the O2 Academy Brixton. A night of stellar musicians and entertainers were awarded the golden "middle finger", but it was a handful of performances that caught my attention. After featuring The Big Pink and Lily Allen's duet, it''s only fitting to showcase another spectacular presentation.

The pairing up of Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro and Welsh singer Marina Diamandis (aka Marina and the Diamonds) for the former's sentimental song Many of Horror has been a staple of my viewing rotation over the course of the past week. The track, from BC's 2009 album, Only Revolutions, was written by frontman Simon Neil about his wife and family.


So with Diamandis trading verses and jumping on the chorus with Neil, the live duet breathed an intense passion into the performance. 


Watch the live duet now.
