Current Music:Our Love Goes Deeper Than This - Duke Special
Security:
Subject:Neil Hannon in Duke Special's new single
Time:12:52 am

Thought I'd get in before anyone else does, heh.

Duke Special, who supported TDC during their last tour, has just released a new single, Our Love Goes Deeper Than This, which is currently on Duke's Myspace.

Neil sings additional vocals, and is quite prominently featured in it; he's also in the music video, which is utterly brilliant. :)

(Apologies for my lack of coherence, it's rather late. Hope I've got the links right.)

A warning to eager fans who miss some Hannon musical goodness: If you read an article about a new DC album in the works, it is not true. Neil is a good friend of Thomas Walsh of the musical outfit Pugwash, and they are recording their new album at the moment, with Neil as one of the core instrumentalists.

Hopefully this hasn't already been mentioned. If it has, I can't find it, hehe.

Apparently Neil is no longer signed by Parlophone :O

This was pointed out to me by someone (I can't get hold of the full article, sorry) - from what I can gather from the official website he left them quite some time ago but it's only just been made public.

I can't decide if I'm pleased that it's a new start for him post-Choice award, or a little worried that he doesn't have a label behind him...

Any thoughts?

This sure is a question that has been asked before but...
How and when did you first listen to TDC?

It's just that since he's won the Choice Music Prize I tend to think (and wouldn't that be nice in way?)that Neil might gain even more fans. Even though I couldn't follow him from the beginning I still think it's sad that in his home country and in France and in some countries.. nada!
But as soon as everyone starts to want a piece of him I'm gonna give in to the incredibly chuldish urge to say "But I have been a fan for years already!" XD
My reasons to get to know the fans that have been around even before I have, so to say.

Heh, ignore this if you wish.

OH MY GOD, Neil just won the CHoice Music Prize!!! It was on the Today FM radio station, he played beautifully and was witty as ever but rated his chances as a snowballs chance in hell. SO WRONG!! He was so lovely, speechless when he got onto stage and saying that he was like Bobby in Dallas because he was going to wake up any moment. The interview afterwards was great- he was breaking out the champagne while still trying to get his head around that he had won!! Im so glad Neil won, he deserved it!!

neilhannon has a new layout! honeyswallow provided the lovely header (and is credited in the userinfo), and I hope you'll agree that the colours I chose for the rest of the page complement it.

First! For the first time in about two years (!) I have updated the userinfo - see here for some latest news links, including some awards Neil is up for.

Second! A community challenge - a competition for someone who can make a header for the community to spice the place up a bit! Matching icon a bonus. Anyone up for it? You will of course be credited in the userinfo and showered in plaudits.

Subject:tdc_icons is now open!
Time:07:47 pm
So, after having done some thinking, I opened up tdc_icons, which shall from now on be our Divine Comedy/Neil Hannon icon community! :D

I'd be happy to see some of you join.

So, no further icon posts in here, and I'm sorry for any inconvenience these might have caused in the past.
If you want the full dosage of icons and tdc graphics, get em there! :)
