Now hear this! Now hear this!

Tomorrow, 18th July, at 11.30am the Mercury Music Prize 2006 nominees are announced, and after our 7/12 prediction hit rate last year we can announce in advance that we believe/guess these will be: Arctic Monkeys, Corinne Bailey Rae, David Gilmour, Guillemots, Hot Chip, Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan, Jim Moray, Lily Allen, Plan B, Richard Hawley, Scritti Politti and Spiers & Boden. Thank you for listening.

Ah, I got 5 the same. And 4 of those were the bloody obvious ones.

Wot, no Kate Bush?

And, of course, by rights, Ladytron's 'Witching Hour' should run away with the prize itself let alone be nominated, but sadly neither will happen.

You're the second person I've seen predict Isobel Campbell/Mark Lanegan so I'm keeping my fingers crossed there's been a judicious leak. If this is, in fact, the 12, then I hope 'Ballad Of The Broken Seas' romps home because, along with Absentee's 'Schmotime' it's my favourite British album of 2006 to date.

Finally, is Matthew Herbert English? If he is, there's something fishy goin' on if 'Scale' doesn't get a nom.

News just in, as these people have found the full entry list. Matthew Herbert is on there (although we suspect he's more admired than outright supported), Ladytron aren't. The Campbell/Lanegan album was mentioned as a potential Antony & The Johnsons controversy part two in the Grauniad, which might work against it in the final analysis but it certainly sounds like the kind of thing they'd stick in. It was between Gilmour and Bush for the long service nomination and Gilmour won out by being the more recent, more outright acclaimed (Aerial did receive a lot of 'it's good, but...' type reviews) and more likely to turn up.

FWIW, also just missing the cut were Tunng (again, perhaps more admired), Sway (edged out of the urban nomination by Plan B), Kate Rusby (ditto for Moray) and Girls Aloud (well, they like to keep us on our toes every now and again).

I can't believe Ladytron didn't even make the blimmin' longlist! But am I right in saying you have to nominate yourself for the longlist - ie. cough up something in the region of £500 ( I seem to remember Seth Lakeman making mention of how he had to take a 2nd mortgage or something to enter himself last year?). If so, that would explain the lack of Ladytron - summing up the amount of support their record company gave them last year!

6/12 for you if I haven't missed anything... where did everyone find out about Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan being such a certainty??

Simon said...

You do have to nominate yourself, at around £200, or of course get the label to stick nominations in for you (Lakeman was on his own label until very recently)
