Chronique de V97
My first festival was V97 in Chelmsford and one of the things I was most excited about was seeing Ash live. The Divine Comedy were on a couple of acts before Ash and were excellent, Neil Hannon is a charming and debonair frontman with wit and verve to spare. But when it came time for Ash to do Oh Y...

Ben Folds a récemment repris Songs Of Love en concert... A ce propos, il est aussi présent dans le dernier album de Pugwash, The Olympus Sound...
'No beer and no dancing make Homer something, something…' is what I often murmured to myself as I sat through Ben Folds. While The Palais is an awesome venue, and this was an awesome show, strict seating and a ban on alcohol in the main hall stopped it from providing the full concert experience - es...

Pugwash - Whelan's - Gigs Reviews - Heineken Music
Neil Hannon était invité au concert de Pugwash à Whelan's.
When a band have been doing the rounds as long as Pugwash, an element of suspicion often colours peoples' opinions of them. In other words, there must be something wrong with them, right? Why do they only ever play in Ireland? Why haven't they made it big (or at least bigger) after four good albums? Are they content to remain on the boundaries of success, relegating their passion to 'hobby' status?

Le Cool - Pugwash
Neil Hannon chronique le nouvel album de Pugwash: The Olympus Sound.
Since discovering Pugwash eight or nine years ago I've become aware of a certain pattern in Thomas' albums. They keep getting better! The Olympus Sound contains another dazzling array of huge sounding, brilliantly catchy pop gems. But where things really step up a gear is in the lyrics. They are well constructed, psychologically interesting, and often very moving. Fall Down, I Don't Like It But I've Gotta Do It, Dear Belinda, they tease out the kernel of truth from the seemingly mundane. My personal favourite though, and maybe the best song Thomas has ever written, is To The Warmth Of You. The words are beautiful, out of focus, almost trippy. The acoustic and string arrangement is outrageously sublime. And we musn't forget Mr. Tosh Flood in all this! Late of Saville, Tosh's guitar and voice have added a powerful soulful edge. / Neil Hannon

Indie labels' distribution hub hit by London riots
Les stocks du dernier album de The Divine Comedy détruit par l’incendie de l’entrepôt Sony DADC.
The distribution hub for records from Britain's independent labels could be an unwitting casualty following last night's rioting in London (8 August). Although the full extent of the damage is still being assessed, an attack on a warehouse in Solar Way, Enfield could have implications of PIAS who provide the distribution for many indie labels.
