来自伦敦南部的全新摇滚乐队"扩音器"(Klaxons)凭借其首张专辑“未来神话”（Myths of the Near Future）夺取了年度最佳唱片大奖以及20,000英镑（约合人民币30万）的奖金。乐队主唱Jamie Reynolds表示，他们获奖是众望所归，比起对手红酒坊的老调重弹般的唱片，他们的唱片代表了最最前卫的思想与声音。
Rock band the Klaxons have won the Nationwide Mercury Prize for the best album of the past year, beating Amy Winehouse and the Arctic Monkeys.
The "new rave" group from south London scooped the £20,000 prize for their debut Myths of the Near Future. Singer Jamie Reynolds said they deserved to beat Winehouse because she made a "retro record and we've made the most forward-thinking record". Winehouse performed at the ceremony, her first appearance for several weeks. She gave a breathtaking rendition of Love Is A Losing Game from her nominated album Back To Black - but it was not enough to win her the award.
Klaxons, who have only been together for two years, looked elated as they hugged and ran on to the stage to collect their award from Jools Holland. The Mercury Prize judges said the group took them on an "ecstatic musical adventure". Their album, which features the singles Golden Skans and It's Not Over Yet, reached number two when it was released earlier this year.
