Yes, that’s right, Elbow won the Mercury Prize 2008 with their fantastic album “The Seldom Seen kid”.

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 2007. Saying that, I’m always weary of the bands I like winning the prize due to ‘the curse‘ and all… so lets hope The Klaxons aren’t affected by it…

I recently came across this video of the Arcade Fire playing the title track from the Neon bible album in an elevator. Very cool.
Check out the rawkstar review of the album.

Look at this – It’s a live(ish) version of “Torn” by Natalie Imbruglia, she gets on stage with a mime who acts out her song – She even joins in with the actions near the end… The guitar solo bit is rather amusing too (even though it’s technically incorrect…).
Random Fact #119203 – David Ford played guitar on Natalie’s 3rd album “Counting Down the Days” which helped fund his solo album “I Sincerely Apologise for all the Trouble I’ve Caused” (More info).

Whilst out last night I saw a quite decent solo artist by the name of Jason Wakefield, otherwise known as Scarlett Rivers. I won’t be doing a review of the night but I just wanted to say that this guy was really good. Here is his MySpace:
As I said, he is a solo artist. He plays the piano like some kind of crazy guy (much like Matt Belamy really), anyway you should give him a listen.

I know the current colour scheme doesn’t fit the rest of the rawkstar site, I will change it to the ‘red’ scheme at some point! I’m really just posting this to see what 2 Quickies look like together :). Also, I’m tempted to not show the quickies on the rawkstar.net homepage (in the recent blog entries list), what do y’all think?

As you may notice, I’ve changed the theme the rawkstar blog uses. Now it has these small entries called ‘quickies’ (wordpress people call them asides, I prefer calling them quickies). So, you may now see more random small comments from the team here!

Is a song by This Et Al. Furthermore, I absolutely love it. From the jarring chords to the sensitive chorus bit, it’s all good. Ticking in at under 2 minutes “all you’ll ever be…” is terribly short, but my, those 96 seconds are purest gold.
