Mercury Music Awards: Elbow Pass On Award

Great to see Manchester's Elbow winning the Mercury and passing the award on to the mantlepiece of the mother of a late lamented comrade. Manchester's REM? Doing the indie thing for more than ten years before the recognition comes.

Excellent choice of video clip, Chris.

So nice to see this band have provided the definitive soundtrack for the Olympics / Paralympics in 2008.

Yep, good lads; think I may owe Garvey a drink from the last time I saw him in Big Hands.
