a short site about The Divine Comedy

French version

The Cherry Orchard

The Cherry Orchard was the temporary name given by Neil Hannon to his band after October when he recruited Kevin Traynor and John McCullagh, in addition to October’s guitarist Lawrence Hoy. The band played a couple of concerts in Enniskillen, mainly composed of covers, and recorded a demo in Banbridge.

When Lawrence left the band, Neil changed to name again to The Divine Comedy. Consequently, the demo was labelled under that new name.
