I’m honoured and excited to be chosen as a judge at the inaugural Dead Albatross Music Prize. This is an alternative to the stale and frankly boring Mercury Music Prize.
Dead Albatross Music Prize
This year’s prize will be decided by an expert panel of 20 music fiends from up and down the Isles, made up of DJs, radio hosts, listeners, bloggers, records shops, and journalists – A select group of folk who know a good noise when they hear one. Voting is currently underway.
On Wednesday30th October, the exact same day as the Mercury award ceremony n posh dinner shindig, you’ll be able to hear the first annual Dead Albatross Music Prize, a bumper three-hour show, on Reel Rebels Radio from 8-11pm, taking a look at each of the twenty Dead Albatross nominations for the year, and running a top five countdown to our number one choice. The winner of the prize shall receive a dead albatross.
