2011 was a massive year for Fife’s best loved secret King Creosote aka Kenny Anderson. His album with Jon Hopkins, ‘Diamond Mine’, was nominated for a Mercury Music Prize and made it into the final 10. For a minute, I and countless other Scots were sure he was going to walk away with the prize, only to be pipped to the post by the largely disappointing ‘Let England Shake’ by PJ Harvey. Not to fear though, with songs as stunning as ‘Bats In The Attic’, we all know who the real winner was.
