Garbage’ Shirley Manson and Oasis singer Liam Gallagher, took Icon and Genius rewards respectively at the Brixton Academy presentation.
Gallagher was presented with his award before thanking “my Mam…and an army of songwriters…past and present.” Older brother Noel, took the same award a few years earlier.
