Not listening to daytime radio much any more means that I'd never really heard Duffy. I just heard Mercy now - it's actually really good, innit? I heard it by chance on the radio and thought 'that's a bit Northern' - then just looked up the YouTube video which confirms it all.
In other stuff I've sightly missed news, aren't Elbow like Mark Eitzel & American Music Club?
(Wait for about 25 seconds in on the video below for 'Ex-Girlfriend' - a terrific song of which Eitzel did a fantastic solo/acoustic performance of when I saw him, many years ago).
