Mercury Prize Nominees Announced

Pretty much your expected list of NME buzz bands:

Arctic Monkeys - 'Favourite Worst Nightmare'
Klaxons - 'Myths Of The Near Future'
Amy Winehouse - 'Back To Black'
Maps - 'We Can Create'
The View - 'Hats Off To The Buskers'
Jamie T - 'Panic Prevention'
Dizzee Rascal - 'Maths & English'
Bat For Lashes - 'Fur And Gold'
Young Knives - 'Voices of Animals And Men'
Fionn Regan - 'The End Of History'
New Young Pony Club - 'Fantastic Playroom'
Basquiat Strings - 'Basquiat Strings'

This one will probably be between Amy Winehouse and Arctic Monkeys, the latter of which will likely be the first back-to-back winner. Hell, I'd take Klaxons out of this group.
