Yes, that’s right, Elbow won the Mercury Prize 2008 with their fantastic album “The Seldom Seen kid”. Excellent!
The Klaxons – WHY?! Better than the tripe that won it last year? Not much… They decided to wreck the podium when collecting their award, you think they’d know how a microphone works…i.e. don’t put it right in your mouth!! I was hoping for Bat For Lashes, which is one of my favourite albums of […]
Another good band have split up! Yourcodenameis:milo last night announced they’re to split up after a 5 year and 4 album career. Read on for a statement from the band…

A belated happy new year from rawkstar! Well i’ve been busy tweaking the design of the site, which will go mostly unnoticed but the world of music hasn’t gone unnoticed, and 2007 should see the return of some of our favourite bands.
