Seattle folk-rock band Fleet Foxes was named best live act by Mojo magazine at its annual awards ceremony in London.
Fleet Foxes beat Leonard Cohen, Seasick Steve, Paul Weller and Radiohead to the live award, although they lost out in the other two categories for which they were nominated. Kings of Leon, nominated for two awards, did not win anything.
Paul Weller's "22 Dreams" (Island/Universal) was named best album, while the song of the year went to "One Day Like This" by Elbow from the Fiction/Polydor set "The Seldom Seen Kid."
The breakthrough act was Fiction/Polydor U.K. band White Lies and was presented by New Order.
Now in its sixth year, the Mojo Honours List is voted for at the mojo4music Web site, with some special awards decided by a judging panel. U.K. rock act Blur, which has reformed for a summer tour including two 50,000-capacity London Hyde Park shows on July 2 and 3, won the inspiration award.
Yoko Ono received the lifetime achievement award at the June 11 ceremony.
Other winners included the Manic Street Preachers (maverick award) Mott the Hoople (hall of fame), Johnny Marr (classic songwriter), the Pretty Things (Mojo hero), and the Zombies, who won the classic album award for the famously misspelled "Odessey & Oracle" from 1968.
Island Records founder Chris Blackwell was awarded the Mojo Medal in the 50th anniversary of the label.
The catalog release of the year went to Miles Davis' "Kind Of Blue 50th Anniversary Edition" (Columbia).
