The Divine Comedy - Paris 2006

The Divine Comedy, 3rd Black Session (#249), Paris, 23rd June 2006

Neil Hannon's music seems ideal for the French audience to me, very Gainsbourgesque in his tongue in cheek sexiness. This was recorded while they promoted their last release, Vistory for the Comic Muse, and fingers crossed ther'll be another album soon, despite Hannon's current work with Pugwash's Thomas Walsh in The Duckworth Lewis Method (a name taken from a scoring system in cricket). Enjoy!

01 To die a virgin
02 In and out in Paris and London
03 Diva lady
04 Queen of the south
05 Generation sex
06 A lady of a certain age
07 If
08 Our mutual friend
09 Party fears two
10 Becoming more like Alfie
11 Mother dear

Bless you! We in the States have (for the most part) sadly missed out on Mr. Hannon and his marvelous band, so this rare live outing is a particular treat for these ears.

Thanks for this and all the great music.

Yeah, I have very much a soft spot for Neil, he does have a rather British wit. A perfectly lovely fellow :)

Aaah, I love your blog. So many great quality recordings from so many of my favourite artists. I'm basically obsessed with The Divine Comedy :) Thanks for this!
