Discover: Britpop | Songwriting Magazine
Of all the genres of music over the last few decades, Britpop might be the most derided of all. For us, unjustifiably so. To blame it for the lad culture of the mid-90s would be like holding The Beatles to account for Charles Mansun. Therefore, we invite you to discover the real Britpop and revel in all its big-chorused glory…

Xiaomi Mi Soundbar Review: High On Style, Low On Substance - MySmartPrice
The Divine Comedy's Gin Soaked Boy used in a audiophile test.
Back in the glory days of CRTs, manufacturers took TV’s sound quality quite seriously. Anyone old enough at the turn of the century will never forget the explosive sound of Videocon Bazooka. Unfortunately, the introduction of LCD technology lead to a pointless race to build razor thin TVs. As a result, for most TV brands, …

Neil Hannon of the band Devine Comedy makes a visit to the Museum, as part of the Made of Athy Project, honouring musicians who came from or have connections to Athy and its locality. Neil’s family links to the town are not that well known. His ancestors were the owners of the local mills at Athy, Ardreigh, Levitstown and Prumplestown. His grandfather left the district just over 100 years ago in 1917 to go to the Shankill in Belfast as a Protestant missionary. His grand uncles John Coulston and Norman Leslie died serving in the First World War as well as two of their first cousins.

We had Neil Hannon of the Divine comedy on board today before the unveiling of the plaque at the site in Ardreigh of his grandfather's mill. The plan was to take him down on the barge but mother nature had other ideas as the river has risen rapidly and scuppered our plans. The unveiling is at Ardreigh at 4:00pm so head on down folks!!

20 YEARS AGO: The Divine Comedy - National Express
Both celebrating and taking the piss out of British society, this 1999 hit was released as the third single from The Divine Comedy's 6th album 'Fin de Siècle', reaching number eight on the UK Singles Chart. The naggingly catchy, almost Broadway-like song is based on Neil Hannon's observations of life from the window of a National Express coach.
