Pride Of Manchester Awards 2009-10
Pride Of Manchester Award for Best Musical Album 2009-10
Following 2008's amazing year for Manchester artists, 2009 was a relatively quiet year with Doves 'Kingdom of Rust' being the most successful on the charts (no.2). Morrissey's 'Years Of Refusal' reached no.3 whilst David Gray's amazing 'Draw The Line', perhaps his best album yet, reached no.5. Ian Brown also returned to form with 'My Way' (no.8). Elbow, with the BBC Concert Orchestra, released their live at Abbey Road version of last year's Pride Of Manchester Award winning 'Seldom Seen Kid' and Take That charted with 'The Circus Live (no.3), recorded at Wembley Stadium as part of their record-breaking tour. New Order's Bernard Sumner returned with new band Bad Lieutenant whilst The Smiths Johnny Marr had success with his new Wakefield-based band, The Cribs, reaching no.8 with 'Ignore The Ignorant'. Nine Black Alps returned without chart success and, despite much media hype and critical acclaim, Kid British could only reach no.67 with 'It Was Either This Or Football'. Starsailor's 'All The Plans' also disappointed at no.26 and the band announced a break.
2,529 members nominated 22 different albums with the final result...
