Paul Receives His NME Godlike Genius Award

Paul was at the NME Awards in London last night to collect his Godlike Genius Award and play the closing set of the night.

Collecting his award, which was presented to him by Mick Jones and Bobby Gillespie, Paul said: "I'm embarrassed because people said so many nice things about me... but they're all true! God bless you, have a good night!"

For his set Paul was joined onstage by Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine and ex-Oasis guitarist Gem Archer.

The setlist was:

'7+3 Is The Striker's Name'
'Wake Up The Nation'
'From The Floorboards Up'
'Eton Rifles'
'Town Called Malice'

To watch the whole ceremony in full, including Paul's acceptance speech and live set - tune in to Channel 4 from 11:25pm this Friday night (February 26).
