'Rabbit Heart' singer Florence Welch is up for four prizes, including Best Live Act and Best Album for her debut 'Lungs', at the annual awards ceremony hosted by the British music magazine and voter for by readers.

Kasabian are also named in the same two categories - the latter for their 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum' LP - as well as picking up a nomination for Song Of The Year for their single 'Fire'.

The other nominees for Best Album are Paul Weller's recent release 'Wake Up The Nation', Richard Hawley's 'Truelove's Gutter' and harpist Joanna Newsom's 'Have One On Me'.

In the Song Of The Year category 'Fire' is joined by Florence's cover of Candi Staton's 'You've Got The Love', Richard Hawley with 'Open Up Your Door', Arctic Monkeys' 'Crying Lightning' and Rage Against The Machine's UK Christmas 2009 number one single 'Killing In The Name'.

Receiving the MOJO Maverick award will be legendary psychedelic space rockers Hawkwind.

Editor-in-chief of the magazine, Phil Alexander, said of the group: "From psychedelia to punk to stoner rock, from free festival culture and on to the rave and trance scenes, you can hear and feel their influence everywhere. In fact Hawkwind are more than just a band, they're a mindset, a way of life."
