Our behavioural fingerprint
There is a song that, when I first heard it, really struck home. Not, I hasten to say, that I have ever been engaging in a strange drinking game with a bunch of Belgian businessmen; I don’t even have a son, let alone one that played football. But the sentiment it expresses resonated with me — and still does today.

The Divine Comedy - Office Politics (vinyl) | Pop | Written in Music
Foreverland, het twaalfde album van The Divine Comedy, bleek een grootse en zeer terechte herwaardering van de band rondom songschrijver/zanger Neil Hannon, de drijvende kracht achter de band. Met het wederom erg sterke nieuwe album Office Politics zal die herwaardering nog wel even voortduren. Het alles onder eigen label doen heeft Hannon de vrijheid gegeven […]

Les chansons d’amour – La discothèque de l'amateur
Il y a bien longtemps – près de cinq ans ! – que je n’avais écrit dans ces pages à propos du facétieux et génial Irlandais, l’immense Neil Hannon et son incomparable Divine Comedy.
