    yep have to second that. Love the album, but was really suprised to see it nominated, as an irish album and everything. G'wan the gemma....next year the rednecks might win! "You might not see things yet on the surface, but underground, it's already on fire." http://www.eclectichoney.com

    Controversial, Dan! Indeed congrats to Gemma Hayes. While we're on the subject of singer/songwriters, it seems to me that with all the hype of Kittser and Gemma Hayes going on, Nina Hynes seems to be undeservedly left in the shadows a little. I'd also strongly recommend her stuff as well as Gemma's. Any thoughts on that anyone? Q

    Thoughts? Hmmm let me see .... No. Fancy some thoughts on something else? Thoughts available at the moment include: 'my head is itchy', 'Junior Gorg is still scary', 'I want to go home now please' and 'Should I go playing piano at lunchtime or not?'

    Well done Gemma. I didn't realise she was known over in the UK. I notice Guy Barker is nominated again as the token jazz musician. My money is on the Streets; they're a real mercury type of band.

    great to see source records cough up the cash for the mercury prize it was becoming way to much of a whole in the pocket for V2 records.... Well to be fair I'd rather see someone from ireland buying it instead of UK band...tis a change anyway I wish source and gemma the best of luck. At least theres no illusions in there eyes in how to get ahead ...to quote another irish industry player....Fair play. P.G. this is going to be fun bab.
