Super Extra Bonus Party won the Choice Music Prize for Irish album of the year 2007 in an awards ceremony in Vicar St, Dublin last night. The Kildare band took the €10,000 prize after 12 music journalist judges decided on Super Extra Bonus Party LP after being locked away in a three hour heated deliberation.
The favourites for the Prize were Cathy Davey and Delorentos with a lot of critics suggesting Adrian Crowley would get the nod. All 10 nominated artists performed on the night including a stunning acoustic set from RoÃsÃn Murphy. Congrats to Jim and everyone for putting it all together.
