a short site about The Divine Comedy

A definite guide to the best of 2001...

The Divine Comedy - Judging from their most recent publicity photos, it looks like The Divine Comedy have taken the unusual step of 'going grunge'. Copies of their new album-currently doing the rounds-suggest a rather different story. Recorded with the ubiquitous Nigel Godrich, Neil Hannon appears to have dispensed with the more jocular, jaunty side of The Divine Comedy in favour of something more downbeat. You'll be able to judge for yourself at the end of January, when the band play their first live shows for almost a year at London's Riverside Studios. These will be followed by a full length UK tour later in the year.
