a short site about The Divine Comedy

This month's guest reviewer: The Boo Radleys

Another person high on the Boo's list of potential backing singers is The Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon, who is a particuliar favourite. "I love all that Leslie Phillips, suited-gentleman stuff Neil's into," gushes Sice, pointing at his knee to indicate the louche lizard's apparent height. "It's so funny that here's this guy that's so tiny and he's booming out these masive Scott Walker-type songs." Meanwhile, Martin is failing his arms around as the lush, orchestral and prilously McCartney-esque, 'The Frog Princess' reaches its crescendo, finaly throwing his arms out for the final chorus before pleading, "I love that, can I have it?"
