Well, we don’t know yet. The winner of the Mercury Music Prize 2012 isn’t announced till the 1st November. You all knew that already right? Or perhaps we fooled you in the way that over lunch you might point out the window and shout; ‘Look, bear!’ so that you can steal your eating companions cheese sandwich.
How do we think will win? No idea. Every year I have my favourite and they NEVER win. Certainly my fav on this list is Alt J but the bookies seem to going for Richard Hawley. We’ll see.
