HERE ARE THE 2015 MERCURY PRIZE NOMINEES

At the 2003 Mercury Prize ceremony, winner Dizzee Rascal wore a t-shirt featuring a picture of his own face, as well as a varsity jacket sporting the logo of every NBA team. It was, to this day, probably the greatest outfit ever pieced together, regardless of its presence at a well-known award show.

Sadly, a feat is unlikely to be repeated at this year's event, given the nominations which were announced this morning: 

Aphex Twin - Syro

Róisín Murphy - Hairless Toys

Wolf Alice - My Love Is Cool

C Duncan - Architect

Eska - Eska

Ghostpoet - Shedding Skin

Florence and The Machine - How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

Benjamin Clementine - At Least For Now

Jamie xx - In Colour

Slaves - Are You Satisfied?

Soak - Before We Forgot How To Dream

Gaz Coombes - Matador

Who will join the likes of Elbow, M People, and Badly Drawn Boy in the annals of musical history come 20 November? Will it be Florence & The Machine? Will we care? Has anyone ever listened to Elbow?
