One Day Like This a Year Would See Me Right
Elbow won the Mercury Music Prize last night. My general opinion of awards is that they don't matter until someone I like does or doesn't win one. Most bands win the Mercury and then disappear into the wilderness for an indefinite amount of time (Portishead, Pulp, Roni Size) so here's hoping it doesn't happen to Elbow. Mind you, I think The Seldom Seen Kid was the contract-fulfilling album.
