Rockers Future Of The Left are celebrating after winning the Welsh Music Prize for their album The Plot Against Common Sense.

The alternative rock group beat acts such as Los Campesinos!, Kids In Glass Houses, and Bright Light Bright Light to claim the honour, billed as the Welsh equivalent of the U.K.'s prestigious Mercury Prize.

Accepting the award at a ceremony in Cardiff on Thursday (18Oct12), the band said, "Everybody says it but we really weren't expecting to win. We're a naughty band made up of naughty people, but we're proud to create a piece of art. To get something like this makes you feel accepted."

Super Furry Animals star Gruff Rhys took home the inaugural trophy last year (11).
