Duffy Beats Nick Cave To The UK Number One Album Spot

Well here she is, Duffy at number one in the UK singles chart and now number one in the UK album chart with her newly released debut album Rockferry. Incidentally, may I point out that Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds also released a new album in the UK Dig, Lazarus Dig!!! on the same date last week (March 3rd).

To understand why Duffy is doing so well, I'd recommend chilling out on the sofa with a nice cup of hot choc and relaxing to this voice:







I think Duffy must also win the prize for most interesting tour date diary this year, have a look at this for a line up:

17 Aug 2008 20:00 V Festival, Weston Park Staffordshire

And the All Points West Festival in Jersey City's Liberty State Park between Aug 8-10th

I wonder when the next time Duffy will play in Llandudno will be, if ever? Believe me, not many bands/singers of this calibre play in Llandudno ever! Nice to see her play Abersoch as well, I'm sure a visit to a the beach only 15 miles down the road from her old home town of Nefyn will be well needed come July 6th.

Just to stir things up a little and get an idea of whether my readers are more Duffy or Nick Cave orientated, vote for who you prefer in my poll (it's in the right hand column near the top of the page). And if for some reason you don't like voting, try leaving a comment.
