Arctic Monkeys win....obviously - Mercury Music

Postby arctic » Tue Sep 05, 2006 10:23 pm

Well, who would have thought it!

The band have picked up another award for their amazing debut album "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not".

The award speech was crap though guys, shame on you!

The annual prize, which was started in 1992, honors the best albums released by British artists in the last 12 months.

The rest of the Nominees were as follows;

Isobel Campbell, Editors, Guillemots, Richard Hawley, Hot Chip, Muse, Zoe Rahman, Lou Rhodes, Scritti Politti, Sway, Thom Yorke.

The prize comes with a cheque for £20,000 (36,000 USD).

Yay!! I wouldn't expect a good speech from the Monks though. Come on, seriously. So maybe they'll get the next Mercury award?!
