Mercury Prize Nominations
So here I am at the Hospital in Covent Garden. No, not for SWINE FLU!! For the Mercury Prize nominations at the private members club thing...
Anyway, here are the albums. Some people surprised that Lily Allen and Little Boots not nominated - and I wanted Frankmusik in there!
Bat For Lashes
Florence & The Machine
Kasabian (They performed. Pretty good actually)
Speech Debelle (The 'urban' nomination I guess. Good luck to Speech, but I'm personally not a huge fan of her music. I genuinly wish her well though, no hateration, holleration in the danceree)
And then these lot I ain't never heard of:
Lisa Hannigan (She performed. Sounded well Enya)
Sweet Billy Pilgrim
According to William Hill, Florence and Kasabian are the favourites...
