Wednesday 20th July

Mercury Prize Time Again
Yes it's time to think about this year's Mercury Prize awards that will happen on 6th September.

The runners and riders have now been named and the bookies fave looks like the Kaiser Chiefs with their album "Employment" who are ahead of "X&Y," "Silent Alarm" by rockers Bloc Party, and Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall's "Eye to the Telescope."

Rounding out the list are "I Am a Bird Now" by Antony and the Johnsons, "Stars of CCTV" by Hard-Fi, "A Certain Trigger" by Maximo Park, "Arular" by M.I.A., "Held On the Tips of Fingers" by Polar Bear, "Kitty Jay" by Seth Lakeman, "Thunder, Lighting, Strike" by the Go! Team, and the Magic Numbers' self-titled album.

Seth Lakeman is a Devon man who is shaking up the folk and traditional music scene, you can here some of his music by clicking on the link above and navigating your way to the discography section. He is especially good on the violin...not what you might be expecting from folk is very good indeed!

It looks like a fairly quiet night tonight with only a few events going on.

Events in West Dorset & South Somerset areas
La Luna (Duran Duran tribute) ~ Chicago Rock Café, Yeovil

Events in Taunton & Bridgwater areas
Modern Jive @ Royal British Legion Club, Taunton
Mark 5 @ Tacchi Morris Arts Centre, Taunton

Have a great day
