Track 16: Songs Of Love, The Divine Comedy – Writing about…
Casanova, 1996 The boundaries of Britpop are decidedly fuzzy. What counts, in terms of sound, attitude, look, time? Who’s in and who’s out? Who gets to decide – the bands or the fans? Several artists denounced the label at the time. Longpigs, who epitomised much of what the era stood for, wanted no part of…

11/09/2018, Rewind/Fast Forward: ALBUM: The Divine Comedy - Fin De Siecle (1998)

The Divine Comedy released their sixth studio album 'Fin De Siecle' 20 years ago this week on 31 August 1998. This was the first album that I ever purchased by Neil Hannon and his band, and it is one of their finest works. It features the brilliant singles 'Generation Sex' and 'The Certainty Of Chance', as well as the hit 'National Express' and the powerful closer 'Sunrise', which documents Hannon's experiences growing up in Northern Ireland during the Troubles.

Silk and Amphetamine (Casanova Companions) | The Flan in the High Castle
To an attentive Divine Comedy fan in the mid-1990s, it would appear that Neil Hannon was releasing EPs under two banners: the Companion and the Indulgence. A record is a Companion when it's associated with a particular album, and an Indulgence when it's not. A Promenade Companion is clearly a satellite in the orbit of the…

And Never the Bride (Casanova) | The Flan in the High Castle
In 1996, The Divine Comedy entered their imperial phase with Casanova, the album that finally broke Neil Hannon into the mainstream. Together with its immediate precursors, Liberation and Promenade, it forms the final part of a three-album plateau of artistic excellence. (Should we call it the early-to-mid-nineties trilogy? Too vague. The fancy-monepic-title trilogy?) However, when…
