Popjustice Twenty Quid Music Prize

The Mercury Music Prize has long been a big UK music event and pop blog Popjustice has ran a tongue-in-cheek version called the Twenty Quid Music Prize on the same night each year. While the Mercury celebrates albums Popjustice bow at the altar of the perfect pop song and pick the best UK pop tune of the year. Peep their liveblog of this year’s proceedings to get a feel for it!

Cakes Da Killa

Been playing his banging new tune Talkin’ Greezy lots on the show the last few weeks and if you haven’t seen the video it’s really beautifully done.
