Below is them picking up the award and in the read more is some vids, including Guy Garvey dedicating the Mercury win to us right here at egoeccentric (well.. not quite, but close enough).

Well deserved - though I hope this doesn't mean they'll now sucuumb to the Curse of the Mercury and disappear off the face of the earth.
