Arctic Monkeys

Richard Hawley

Sway

Muse

Editors

Hot Chip

Isobel Campbell

Lou Rhodes

Scritti Politti

Guillemots

I'm gunning for Muse, new album is sh*t hotter than hot sh*t. Isobel Campbell is an outside chance, as Belle & Sebastian are cult hereos.

But the populist money is on the Snartic Flunkys or Thom's lets take the bleeps away from radioheads next album and put them in this one album.

GO MUSE! Matt's right - the new album is brilliant.

Gary

my vote is for THE KOOKS

Fred

I'm a long way from London at the moment. Certain other events seem to be dominating the headlines, so please, somebody tell me more about this Scritti Politti comeback. Just curious.
