Friendly Fires 'looking forward to Mercury meal'
Friendly Fires hope to get a good meal at the Mercury Prize ceremony.
Friendly Fires waiting for Mercury Prize food Friendly Fires have revealed that they are excited about this year's Barclaycard Mercury Prize, but not for the usual reasons.

Speaking to BBC Newsbeat, the band said they are eagerly awaiting the chance to fill up on the food on offer at the September 8th ceremony.

Frontman Ed MacFarlane explained: "I'm looking forward to having a nice meal because I haven't had a nice meal in ages - it'll be good to have a proper cooked meal."

However, guitarist Ed Gibson suggested that Friendly Fires are not as blasé about the award as MacFarlane made out, telling the broadcaster that the band is hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

Gibson also said the group's relentless touring schedule is taking its toll on their output and revealed that it took them more than seven months to write and record current single Kiss Of Life.

When the Mercury Prize nominees were announced in July, bookmaker William Hill ranked Kasabian and Florence and the Machine as 5-1 favourites, while La Roux, Glasvegas and Bat For Lashes received 6-1 odds.
