Mercury winners Alt-J’s Harrogate link

editorial image

A reader writes: “I just wondered whether you were aware that the drummer of Alt J (Thom Green) who won the Mercury Prize last night was actually from Harrogate?

“He was a student at St Aidans High School and lived in Harrogate until joining Leeds Uni in 2007.

“ With this in mind it makes reading this article (and especially the title) very strange!”

Many thanks to reader Fiona McDermott for getting in touch and setting us straight.

Does anyone else have an ono on ALt-J’s Harrogate links?
