Klaxons scoop Nationwide Mercury Music Prize
The Klaxons won the Nationwide Mercury Prize for the best album of the year, beating both Amy Winehouse and the Arctic Monkeys.
The new rave rockers from South London walked away with the £20,000 prize for their debut album Myths of the Near Future.
Despite Winehouse being favourite to pick up the award for her album Back to Black, Klaxons singer Jamie Reynolds said his band deserved to beat the troubled soul singer because she made a ‘retro record and we’ve made the most forward-thinking record’.
Winehouse returned from her Caribbean break with husband Blake Fielder-Civil to perform at the ceremony, after some uncertainty that she would attend at all after a difficult few weeks.
She took to the stage with huge applause from the music industry and gave an astounding performance of her new single Love Is A Losing Game, from her nominated album, but it wasn’t enough to win her the coveted prize for best album.
The Mercury Prize judges said of the winning band that the group took them on an ‘ecstatic musical adventure’.
Last year’s winners of the prize, the Arctic Monkeys, were nominated for their second album Favourite Worst Nightmare. However the Sheffield band did not attend the ceremony as they are touring the US.
Other nominees include Fionn Regan, New Young Pony Club, The View, Maps and Jamie T.
