So what?

People have kept asking me over the last couple days who I thought would win the Mercury prize, and then today what I think about the Klaxons winning the illustrious £20K. Just to let you all know: I couldn't give a flying fuck about the awards. Here's some things to think about this year:

1) The bird from New Young Pony Club griped that Klaxons shouldn't have had the award, as they didn't need the exposure. Hold on though, wasn't she dating a Klaxon last year? Is this a case of sour-dayglo-nu grave-grapes?

2) Bat for Lashes was "Robbed". Eh? She's not that good, but surely this will have helped her sell a few more records AND ensure she's a longer career.

3) Conor McNicholas. With that twat on the panel, is it really a surprise that the poster boys of a scene he came up with won the prize? That's like Rick Astley winning the 1987 Pete Waterman Best Pop Award for the Best Pop Star in 1987 judged by Pete Waterman.

4) Klaxons claim their album is "the sound of the future". That's why there's a cover of not only "the Bouncer" but also "Not over Yet". Both tracks were released in the 90's.

5) Amy Winehouse can't sing live. At all.
