Bird Of Pay

It wasn't my favourite album on the list of nominations, but it is now as Antony And The Johnsons walk away with the Nationwide Mercury Music Prize for I Am A Bird Now, justifying my decision not to sniff at the ludicrously high odds of 14-1 William Hill were offering about it when the nominations were announced.

Wish I'd put more than a fiver on it, though. But the one thing most pleasing about the Chichester-born crooner taking the prize (yes, even more than Dead Kenny becoming richer than his wildest dreams) was the fact that red hot favourites, those despicable and loathsome chancers Kaiser Chiefs, were clearly desperate to win.

All good things come out of Chichester. FACT.

Ah, but that's it, all good things may indeed come out of Chichester (including yourself, Mr G, of the *top secret* new location) but they never come back, do they?
