A BAND originally from Worcester are in the running for two titles from the world’s longest-running music weekly.

Peace, who formed in the city in 2009, have been shortlisted in the best album category at the NME Awards 2014 for their debut longplayer In Love which was released on Columbia Records in March 2013.

Brothers Harry and Sam Koisser along with Doug Castle and Dom Boyce face competition from the likes of Arctic Monkeys with AM and Kanye West with Yeezus.

Among its 14 tracks was a heady mix of euphoric and swaggering tunes, including the singles Follow Baby, Wraith and California Daze.

Peace have also been put forward in the Best Fan Community category, where they are up against the fans of Arctic Monkeys, Hurts, Haim, Morrissey and Muse.

During their time in the Faithful City, the band was known as November and the Criminal and before venturing to the second city, Doug and Dom attended Bishop Perowne CE College, while Sam and Harry went to Droitwich Spa High School and Nunnery Wood High School.

The winners of the awards will be announced during a ceremony at London's O2 Academy Brixton on Wednesday, February 26.

Having met Douglas Castle in the flesh on more than one occasion can I say how disappointed I am that this naughty man now represents Worcester on the national stage.

This photograph is typical of his bands "image". They all look like they have just been dragged out of their bedrooms by their respective parents and could do with a jolly good wash.

Get a haircut.
