'Oh, and cheers for the award'

"Why is your music so effing loud? You must all be brain-dead. Maybe you are. I didn’t know so many clichés existed until the last half-hour. Have fun. Goodbye"

- Sir Harrison Birtwistle has a crack at loud pop music at the Ivor Novello Awards in London, 25 May 2006. Birtwistle was receiving an award for his classical compositions.
