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.

Abba, Bee Gees, Carpenters (1/2) - Les années choc | ARTE
Rediffusion la semaine prochaine d'un documentaire sur Arte dédié à la pop des années 70, avec Neil Hannon en intervenant.
Nourri des éclairages de la crème de la pop et de la critique et de pros de la musique, ce documentaire en deux parties croise les parcours des trois groupes ? succès planétaire, chute, redécouverte... Grâce à un ingénieux montage d'archives et de tubes, il raconte le snobisme rock des seventies, les sommets de niaiserie atteints par Abba, The Bee Gees et The Carpenters, tout en esquissant la valeur de leur musique : placement parfait des voix, travail d'orfèvre en studio, arrangements géniaux. Un talent que décryptent des musiciens tels que Neil Hannon ou Jarvis Cocker.

“Funny tragic. It’s my own genre!” Neil Hannon interview, State, March 2011 – Psychiatry and Songs
The Divine Comedy's Promenade was released when I was 19.9 years old and was a constant companion through my early twenties. It was an early move away from earnest rock and folk-rock, an early realisation that music could be fun and light and daft still have some weight and still mean something. I interviewed Neil…

Weather songs: The best music about metereololgy, from Rihanna to Bob Dylan, Bill Withers and Martha Reeves | The Independent
Weather turns out to be as resilient a resource in songwriting as it is in conversation. Bob Dylan, for one, was particularly keen on rain as a metaphor for personal and national turbulence – “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall”, “Buckets of Rain”, “Shelter from the Storm”, “Rainy Day Women #12 and #35” – and he’s by no means alone.
