Well, once again the wrong artist won the Mercury prize.
Not that I have anything against Speech Debelle it is just that Led Bib are wonderful. Here’s the list of Nominations. What do you think?
The Nominees were;
SPEECH DEBELLE – SPEECH THERAPY
BAT FOR LASHES – TWO SUNS
FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE – LUNGS
FRIENDLY FIRES – FRIENDLY FIRES
GLASVEGAS – GLASVEGAS
THE HORRORS – PRIMARY COLOURS
THE INVISIBLE – THE INVISIBLE
KASABIAN – WEST RYDER PAUPER LUNATIC ASYLUM
LA ROUX – LA ROUX
LED BIB – SENSIBLE SHOES
LISA HANNIGAN – SEA SEW
SWEET BILLY PILGRIM – TWICE BORN MEN
I am not convinced about Florence, can’t stand Kasabian, and do not like the idea of Lisa Hannigan (Irish folk……). But apart from that quite a strong bunch. The Horrors are good, and I like Twice Born Men (even after a review in the Sunday Times that was suitable for Pseuds Corner).
