Always great when fellow forum members recommend tracks to listen to. Mike Menzies has also directed me to stuff by Joe Jackson and ArrGee to the new Who output, for instance. Both great recommendations.

Should have a recommended thread.    Right now I am mainly listening to The Divine Comedy.  Hard to recommend any album in particular, but Casanova is probably a good starting point.  Or Secret History which is the best of.  Lots of hidden gems in the back catalogue like the cover of Life on Mars?

As an aside I have booked 4 nights of their 5 night residence at Barbican in September.  If it takes place.  Waiting for a good seat for the Saturday night.

Neil Hannon celebrates 30 years as The Divine Comedy performing ten of his records in full across a five-night residency.

In 1990 musical history was made when a twenty-year old Neil Hannon signed his first record deal and began releasing one glorious album after another under the name The Divine Comedy. 30 years, twelve magnificent albums and hundreds of spellbinding shows later, Neil Hannon is considered by many to be a national treasure and one of the finest singer songwriters of his generation.

Whether your favourite is the much-loved anthem National Express or deep-dives into the esoteric likes of Count Grassi's Passage Over Piedmont, this is a one-time-only chance to immerse yourself in Hannons imaginative world, as he plays virtually his entire back catalogue, accompanied on stage by a ten piece ensemble.
