IT'S AIRMAGEDDON - THE RESULTS ARE IN!
Boy Named Sue is the 2014 Air Guitar UK Champion!
The annual Air Guitar UK Championships, the battle for the coveted title of greatest air guitarist in the country, came to a thunderously sweaty, sweary, and raucous conclusion on Saturday July 19th, with air guitarist Boy Named Sue taking the crown!

Official Warm-Up Party
The Official Warm-up Party for the Championships rocked The World's End, Camden on Friday the 18th of July. We shredded-up the place with a night of aireoke (air guitar karaoke) awesomeness, and not only that, but the best air guitar of the evening as judged by the audience, won a real there guitar, a special edition Jack Daniels Fender Squier!
