Last night the XX won the Mercury prize 2010. Well done guys!
I had the chance to see them live last year in Sheperds Bush, London and they were one of the best bands I saw playing live, indeed. No one could take their eyes off of them. Actually I still think they sounded even better than on the record. The music and the voices of the singers were literally hypnotic.
I could listen to their album over and over and it has been the soundtrack of the past months of my life.
