The Divine Comedy (GBR)

The Divine Comedy (GBR)Formed in 1989 in Northern Ireland, the constant in The Divine Comedy is Neil Hannon’s vision. His lyrics offer oodles of insight and literary references, often matched by the orchestral sweep to the music. It would need a lock-in (when the pub shuts and the drinking doesn’t) to convey how perfect it was to have an Irish Divina Commedia do the theme music for Ireland’s greatest, most subversive sitcom Father Ted (1995–97). One not to miss.
