Mercury chatter

Published on Saturday 29 July 2023

The Mercury Prize shortlist was announced this week, of course, and these are apparently the trophies that are given to the nominated artists. Each of their albums will also get a five word review from CMU’s Andy Malt on next week’s Setlist, which is surely the real honour. And I only mention that time they served fish at the awards show once. We will also discuss the debate around Matty Healy’s on-stage comments in Malaysia and the latest developments in the Save The Leadmill campaign. Sign up via your podcast app of choice now and it will be waiting for you in there to listen to on Monday morning!
