Added by Bob on 5th September 2006
The Arctic Monkeys.
I'd have much rather see the Guillemots winning... or Muse! (Both for different reasons)
Let's hope the curse doesn't affect them too much ;)
Arctic Monkeys debut album "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not" has won them £20,000! - They're going to spend it on something special but wouldn't announce the details of this during an interview with Jo Whiley after they had been awarded the prize.

- Muse - Black Holes & Revelations
- Guillemots - Through The Windowpane
- Thom Yorke - The Eraser
