Subject:Hello! Anyone still posting/watching here?
Time:04:00 pm
This seems to be the only Neil Hannon/TDC  community on LJ, and it appears to be very quiet! Anyone still interested in discussing Neil or TDC? I'm a relatively new fan,so very late to the party here, but no one I know has heard of him! (I live in the U.S.) What did people thing of "Bang Goes the Knighthood"? What about The Duckworth Lewis Method?

Apparently Neil helped out his Pugwash friends on their new album, out now. I'm so gonna get that one, Pugwash do good things with a melody anyway, and Neil just sweetens the deal. I think the band is gigging in the not too distant future, and Neil may show up, too.

Well, Neil's appearance at Trinity College was very successful last night-




There's a reason I'm smiling like a fool- although you can't see it, Neil's arm is around my waist.

Here follows the handful of photos I got and an account of what happened, for those interested...

1. I have recently learned, from a brief over-the-phone radio interview, that Neil is putting a "depressing German one man theater piece" to music, on top of composing Swallows & Amazons (which, BTW, he is more than half-way through).

2. You can listen to his acoustic (guitar) rendition of Hark! The Herald Angels Sing that he played on Across the Line HERE (just scroll down).

3. If you feel you are lacking in a proper DC/Hannon lj icon, do stop by tdc_icons or my icon journal, fantasmicon --because really I'm the only one who's posted on tdc_icons yet! And I've got loads more yet to post as well, so come by, say hello, take an icon if you wish. Because TDC needs to be represented more, and an icon is a nice, fun way of doing that!

That's all. Happy holidays everyone!

Well, Neil was a guest DJ on Phantom FM last night, for three hours. It was on their website so you can download it but until they do or for people who may have missed it, heres what Neil played and any little comments he made on his choice of song-

(I apologise if I spelt any of these wrong- I never heard of a good bunch of these before last night and sometimes i couldnt quite understand what Neil was saying.)

1. M- Pop Music: "The greatest pop song ever written."
2. Pugwash- Nice to be Nice.
3. Belle and Sebastien- The Blues are Still Blue: "Reminds me of sitting by a pool in Spain."
4. Edith Piaf- L'amour.
5. Elvis Costello- I Dont Want To Go To Chelsea.
6. Ride- Chelsea Girl.
7. Scott Walker- Matilda, Boychild and Night Flights.
8. ELO- Rockarina: "This is one of my favourite bands and soon they shall be one of yours."
9. Adam and the Ants- Stand and Deliver.
10. Ben Folds- The Ascent of Stan: "This is in honour of Stan Staunton."
11. Pixies- Debaser.
12. Nina Simone- Pirate Jenny (Live).
13. Japan- Ghosts.
14. Tom Layer- Oedepius Rex.
15. Roxy Music- Same Old Scene.
16. Goldfrapp- Oh La La: "This is the sexiest modern female artist."
17. Making Plans For Nigel- ?
18. Pulp- Underwear, Misshapes and E's and Wizz.
19. Grace Jones- Slave to the Rhythm: "She's adorable. Heeeeeere's Grace!!!"
20. The Tigger Song: "This is for my daughter, Willow."
21. Francois Ardi- Je Changerai d'avis.
22. Steely Dan.
23. Petulia Clarke: *Neil starts singing along* "It was inevitable. I would end up performing at some point."
24. Scritti Pollitti- A Little Knowledge: "This will make you weep."
25. Aster Diezola- Oblivion.
26. Sebastian Tellier- Le Ritionel.
27. Simon and Garfunkel- Dangling Conversation.
28. Rufus Wainwright- Poses: "I adore Rufus.And im man enough to say that!"
29. Dinah Washington- Mad About the Boy: "In honour of Rufus."
30. Everybody Wants to be A Cat: "I want to be a dog."
31. Joy Division.
32. Sigur Ros.

He also got some odd requests in: "Led Zeppelin? You clearly don't know me at all."
He berated people for using text speak: "Commas, capital letters, they're all the rage!"
He also said: "You can imagine me sitting here in my underwear if you want to."

Having Neil as a DJ was a genius idea. Also, I quite lliked his choices of music.

Just a lottle something, quite possibly irrelevent, but funny nonetheless..

Well, I was reading Hotpress magazine's round up of the week's events and it had written- "Good to see Neil Hannon dancing away with gusto at the Rufus Wainwright gig."

One- I didn't know Neil was a Rufus fan. Discuss.

Two- I am also trying to visualise how Neil would dance to Rufus Wainwright. I would dearly love to see that. Discuss.
