MERCURY SHORTLIST ROCKS: The Mercury Shortlist has just been announced - here's the list:

The Thrills - 'So Much For The City'
Coldplay - 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head'
Radiohead - 'Hail To The Thief'
Athlete - 'Vehicles and Animals'
The Darkness - 'Permission to Land'
Dizzee Rascal - 'Boy In Da Corner'
Lemon Jelly - 'Lost Horizons'
Terri Walker - 'Untitled'
Floetry - 'Floetic'
Martina Topley-Bird - 'Quixotic'

... so, Coldplay versus Radiohead would be an interesting battle on any day of the week. I'm guessing The Darkness are going to be early favourites to pick up the prize in the long run. Has anyone actually ever heard Martina Topley-Bird, or is she one of those acts that nobody ever hears but everyone likes to name drop?
