2005 Nationwide Mercury Awards

I just got back from my couch after watching for an hour of British Nationwide Mercury award show which frankly is a great show for the upcoming musical talents in the U.K without the usual media frenzy of the present popular music scene (I know most of us know about that, by now......)

Well, this show gave nominations to 12 bands most of which were independant. Most because Cold Play was amongst them, probably because they too started out as an independant band and had been nominated since their first album and hence this was their third time for their third album.
And unlike most other awards this particular award handed out an award statue for each and every one of the nominations, and of course a seperate one for the winner (including the one he/she gets as a nominee.

I thinks that's enough of beating around the bush, here are the 12 nominees

Bloc Party

Antony And The Johnsons
Maximo Park
The Magic Numbers

K.T TunstallKaiser Chiefs

And the Winner is.............................
