Mike Skinner from The Streets joined Radio 1’s Jo Whiley for a chat on Wednesday (July 21). Asked about getting nominated for the Mercury Prize, Skinner said, “Don’t bet on me winning ’cause I’m not going to the ceremony! It’s a bit a whirlwind at the moment and I stay in defensive mode, in my own little world, but it’s a great award and I’m very proud to be nominated again. I want The Zutons to win it!” bbc.co.uk/radio1 has since removed the audio.
