The Divine Comedy is the alias for Neil Hannon, a British pop singer/songwriter with aspirations of becoming a new wave fusion of Scott Walker, Morrissey, and Electric Light Orchestra. During the early '90s, he built up a strong cult following with a pair of idiosyncratic, critically acclaimed records before his third album, Casanova, became a mainstream success. "Becoming More Like Alfie" and "Something for the Weekend," both pulled from Casanova, became hits after receiving significant airplay from Radio 1, and the Divine Comedy moved from British indie rock favorites to a minor mainstream cult in their own right.

The Divine Comedy were formed in Londonderry, Ireland, by Neil Hannon who provided vocals, guitar and the lion's share of song-writing. Inspired by R.E.M., the band started as a trio and released an EP, Fanfare for the Comic Muse, in the spring of 1990. In 1991, the group released the EP Timewatch and it was the following year, which saw the group relocate to London, where they regularly supported Suede on club gigs. Produced by Edwyn Collins, the EP Europop was released later in 1992.

Following Europop, the Divine Comedy fell apart, and Hannon went back to Londonderry, where he began to write songs again. In 1993, the album Liberation was released to positive reviews. Promenade followed in 1994, again to positive reviews throughout the U.K. music press; it appeared on year-end lists from NME, Melody Maker, and Q, among others. Released early in 1996, Casanova was greeted with enthusiastic reviews and it slowly began to build an audience. "Something for the Weekend" became a staple on UK national radio. When it was released as a single a month later, "Something for the Weekend" entered the charts at 14. Soon, Hannon was appearing not only on the cover of Melody Maker, but there were articles about him throughout mainstream press, from The Guardian to Just Seventeen.

Released to coincide with Valentine's Day 1997, A Short Album About Love was greeted with positive reviews and the strongest initial sales of any Divine Comedy record to date.

In 1999, the Divine Comedy celebrated ten years. The release of A Secret History marked the occasion, but Hannon had his hand in other projects. He contributed vocals to Tom Jones' Reload as well as Ute Lemper's album Punishing Kiss. A new deal surfaced at the dawning of the new millennium and Hannon headed into the studio with producer Nigel Godrich. This resulted in their very last album Regeneration in 2001.

NEW SIGNING - PROTOMARTYR 'RELATIVES IN DESCENT' OUT 29TH SEPTEMBER 2017

DOMINO ALL-IN
Protomartyr 'Relatives in Descent'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


Anxiety about the precarious nature of reality is a recurring thread on Protomartyr's 4th full-length and Domino debut, Relatives In Descent out September 29th. Though not a concept album, it presents twelve variations on a theme: the unknowable nature of truth, and the existential dread that often accompanies that unknowing. It's no coincidence this missive comes to us at a moment when disinformation and garbled newspeak have become a daily reality.  'Relatives In Descent' offers new layers and new insights, without sanding any of the edges born from their days as a Detroit bar band.

It all begins with ‘A Private Understanding,’ pegged as the album's opening statement the second it was finished, and a wellspring from which the following eleven songs flow. At once beautiful and brutal, it mutates from drum-led oddity to unlikely anthem, with some of Casey’s most potent lyrical work at its centre.

Watch the video for 'A Private Understanding' above.
