When Richard Hawley's album Coles Corner was nominated for the 2006 Mercury Music Prize, Hawley was an outsider with an album whose success had been by slow burn word of mouth. But by the evening of the ceremony itself he'd become many peoples favourite, including winners Arctic Monkeys who remarked “Somebody call 999, Richard Hawley's been robbed”. Naturally, Hawley himself remained firmly rooted to reality but then you'd expected nothing less of a man whose velveteen lullabies have seen him labelled “the Elvis of the North” among many other tributes but who regards himself as “that speccy twat from Sheffield”.
