Humble Bob

Robert Wyatt, creator of perhaps the best album on a fairly predictable Mercury shortlist (Franz Ferdinand, Belle and Sebastian, The Streets, the hideous Keane, Amy Winehouse, Wyatt, Basement Jaxx, the excellent Ty, Joss Stone, The Zutons, Snore Patrol and Jamelia) has declared that it would be a 'disgrace' if he won the award. He says...

"Others who have been shortlisted - Amy Winehouse, Basement Jaxx, Belle & Sebastian - are far more deserving. I'm in just to keep the contest broad."

I hope the judges ignore him completely; Cuckooland deserves to win.

The article:
"If I win it's a disgrace, says singer on shortlist"
