Hot Chip have backed Arctic Monkeys to win the Nationwide Mercury Prize, even ahead of themselves, also nomimated for the award.
Speaking to MTV, frontman Alexis Taylor said: "I'm gonna put some money on them!", before adding: "I haven't actually checked our odds yet."
He also revealed his liking for the band, after metting them at the Accelerator festival in Sweden: "We had a nice time with the Arctic Monkeys in Sweden. We played at a festival called Accelerator over there and they were around and it was very nice.
"We were backstage and there was a nice kind of balcony and the sun setting on the water and Alex (Turner) was there sort of playing his guitar and it was really quite strange. I didn't actually say hello to them, they looked a bit pissed off about being there but they seemed nice."
The 2006 Nationwide Mercury Prize will be revealed on September 5.
As you can probably remember, in the past we posted video clips from TV shows mentioning or impersonating Arctic Monkeys in some way. You can probably also remember how bad the acting seems to be when they do this.
