That was so predictable…

…that I wasn’t expecting it at all.

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Arctic Monkeys win Mercury prize

You might recall that back in July I mentioned the nominees for this year’s Mercury Music Prize. At the time, I suggested that my preferred winner would have been Guillemots, but that I’d be quite happy if Editors or the ubiquitous Arctic Monkeys were to win. Well, the result has been announced, and the award has gone to those cheeky little Sheffield Monkeys.

Not a bad choice at all, really.
