Sorry Radiohead! Elbow Takes Mercury Prize for Best UK Album
The 2008 Mercury Prize for best UK album of the year went to Elbow for their album The Seldom Seen Kid, besting 11 other finalists, including Radiohead's In Rainbows and offerings from British Sea Power and oddsmakers' choice Burial.
Congratulations to the lads from Manchester, who have always been very cordial to us here at LAist, granting us an exclusive interview back in May when they came to LA. You can also read the LAist CD review of The Seldom Seen Kid.
