The Real Winner.

I've grown out of touch with the Mercury Music Prize over the years. It seems to get more and more erratic as each one goes by. In my opinion, the last truly deserving winner was PJ Harvey's "Stories from the City...", which has to be the last GREAT British winner that to pick up the award. I've nothing against last nights winners - the Arctic Monkeys - as they truly are a home grown talent come good. I just feel they're a bit too popular, a bit too pop, and a bit too much of a fans favourite after last years bizarre choice of the Antony and the Johnsons, who, lets face it, are an American band no matter which way you look at it. In any case, the real winner out of last nights awards has been Richard Hawley, who despite having the best album in Coles Corner, has noticed the greatest increase in sales since the nominations were announced. I think I was more interested in the PopJustice 20 quid prize this year anyway.
