Elbow win the 2008 Mercury Prize!

I am just delighted this morning to hear that Elbow have won the prestegious Mercury Prize this year for their terrific CD "The Seldom Seen Kid", released earlier this year. It certainly is in my list of favorites CDs of the year so far.

You can read more about last night's awards via the BBC's site.

I had never heard of Elbow before this CD. They are not newcomers to the music scene, but they aren't that well known to most Americans. Now, I want to explore more. I guess it's time to zip over to Amazon and see what's available in their back catalog!
