Klaxons win Mercury Prize


Well, I didn’t see that coming.

I have the album and it is not bad.

It’s quite good actually, but I think it is neither definitive or extraordinary.  It’s just a good record.

The bookies were ultimately favouring Bats for Lashes which is an extraordinary album, but also not definitive and actually, apart from a few songs, not that good.

Amy’s drug stuff probably lost her it.

On the night I thought Fionn and Basquait Strings were most interesting.

Of the shortlist I have to say I think the best record (yes RECORD said the old man) was Arctic Monkeys’ opus2.

Enjoy the winners’ best song.
