The Divine Comedy - Europop EP | Pop | Written in Music
Nog geen 4 maanden na Timewatch is Europop de tweede EP die The Divine Comedy uitbrengt. De EP verschijnt in januari 1992, een jaar na hun officiële debuut Fanfare For The Comic Muse. De Europop EP is de ommekeer in geluid en de opmaak van datgene wat The Divine Comedy de decennia erna zo speciaal […]

The Divine Comedy – Timewatch EP | Alternative | Written in Music
Timewatch is de eerste EP die The Divine Comedy uitbracht in 1991, een jaar na hun officiële debuut Fanfare For The Comic Muse. Met de band nu zelf achter de productietafel en iets meer tijd om op te nemen komt er meer vrij van waar de sound even later naar toe zal gaan. Opgenomen met […]

The Divine Comedy - Fanfare For The Comic Muse | Pop | Written in Music
Het eerste album van het Ierse The Divine Comedy, verschenen in mei 1990, is eigenlijk meer een EP met maar 7 songs en een speeltijd van ruim 26 minuten. Een album ook dat Neil Hannon eigenlijk al snel wilde vergeten toen hij als songschrijver zijn eigen stijl voor de band gevonden had. Toch is Fanfare […]

Songs of Love: The Divine Comedy and Gratitude – Psychiatry and Songs
Neil Hannon turned fifty last week, the day Biden won. That makes him a tad older than my older brother, which slightly surprised me. That means that my very early twenties, during which Promenade and Casanova were on consecutive years-long loops on my Discman, were Neil’s mid-twenties. I thought we were closer in age; I…

Our Mutual Friend – Sitting Up Straight
I recently read a tweet from Pete Paphides praising the new reissues of The Divine Comedy's back catalogue and it prompted me to investigate the expanded edition of my favourite Divine Comedy album, Absent Friends (2004.) Absent Friends is a fairly recent favourite of mine as I was only a causal Divine Comedy fan during…

Musique. Le disque du jour : The Divine Comedy, la rétrospective idéale
The Divine Comedy, c’est un faux groupe et un vrai talent : Neil Hannon. Quand il s’est révélé avec les albums Liberation et Promenade en 1993 et 1994, on pouvait croire que l’on avait affaire à un petit génie, certes, mais quelque peu maniéré : un obsédé de la perfection baroque, tendance Scott Walker ou Eric Matthews.

Debs, Cathy and I used to help with Dogs Aid and we all love animals, but we really didn't know that much when we started rescuing horses. We are all from parts of Dublin where we had seen horses being mistreated and abandoned. We saw a lot, more than most.

There’s a magic to hearing music in such small audiences: Divine Comedy reviewed | The Spectator
Three shows in a week! Why, it was just like the first week of March. There was, however, little of that last-days-of-Weimar giddiness about these. How could there be, when there were 300-odd people dotted around Barbican Hall’s 2,000 seats, and 50 or so of us at Oslo — normally a packed, standing-only club — sat on stools, unable even to waggle a hip?

La photo d’origine ornait avec panache la couverture de l’album Casanova sorti en 1996 et quatrième disque de Divine Comedy. Neil Hannon, au sommet de sa période baroque, y arborait une magnifique livrée bleue, avec une écharpe soyeuse tandis qu’il zieutait (sous lunettes noires) l’horizon Renaissance (ok, Casanova est XVIIIème, nous souffle Stéphane Bern) de la cité vénitienne d’un air inspiré.
