Delighted as we were to hear that Speech Debelle won the Mercury Music Prize last night, the results that we’ve been waiting for have finally come in. The front-runners tell us about their favourite pastas, their favourite ABBA songs and weigh in on the on-going Badger Vs Baboon debate…
1. Favourite pasta: Penne
2. Favourite ABBA song: What’s the one that Madonna sampled? (Gimme Gimme Gimme)
3. What would you call a cat? Mr Crowler
4. Favourite swear word: Twat
5. Badger vs Baboon: Baboon would probably go in strong but badgers are quite shifty and they’re bigger than you think. I ran one over once and it was massive.
Friendly Fires:
1. Favourite pasta: Taglietelli
2. Favourite ABBA song: I quite like the winner takes it all. Waterloo’s good. Gets the crowd going.
3. What would you call a cat? Pretty normal name like Dennis.
4. Favourite swear word: C word. Or, yeah, **** nugget.
5. Badger vs Baboon: Baboon, they’re vicious.
Speech DeBelle:
1. Favourite pasta: Maccaroni pasta ‘cos I can make maccaroni cheese.
2. Favourite ABBA song: Can I pass on ABBA?
3. What would you call a cat? Puss.
4. Favourite swear word: Can I say it? I can’t. Suckyamudda.
5. Badger vs Baboon: A baboon! That’s got a right hook on it man.

Bat For Lashes:
1. Favourite pasta: Spaghetti
2. Favourite ABBA song: The Winner Takes It All
3. What would you call a cat? Miracle
4. Favourite swear word: Cock
5. Badger vs Baboon: I’m hoping the badger because it’s British and it should. Woodland creatures rule over a baboon, definitely.

Tom and Josh from the Horrors:

1. Favourite pasta: Linguini
2. Favourite ABBA song: Claus (that’s what one of my cats are called) He’s named after the drummer from Neu
3. What would you call a cat? The one that Madonna sampled. Or Lay All Your Love On Me.
4. Favourite swear word: ****. Definitely.
5. Badger vs Baboon: Badgers! They’re fierce!
Lisa Hannigan:
1. Favourite pasta: Pasta made by Tommo (her bandmate)
2. Favourite ABBA song: Gimme Gimme Gimme.
3. What would you call a cat? I have a cat called Stevens – Cat Stevens!
4. Favourite swear word: Being Irish it would have to be “****!” I think.
5. Badger vs Baboon: Badger. Don’t **** with a badger.
One day we will die and our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea,
but for now we are young let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see
