In 1990 Neil Hannon started recording and releasing under the name The Divine
Comedy. Thirty years and twelve great albums later, Hannon is rightly adjudged
one of the finest singer songwriters of his generation. To celebrate, Divine
Comedy Records are remastering and reissuing nine of the bands classic
albums.
? The reissues will be released by Neil Hannon's own label Divine Comedy Records
on August 21st, 2020
• Bang Goes The Knighthood was first released in 2010. Written in the
aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, Bang.. took an acerbic look into the lives
of the rich and powerful, and their impact on the rest of us “down in the street
below.” It was described in the Sunday Times as "a collection worthy of Randy
Newman at his best" while Pitchfork said, "Neil Hannon continues to quietly and
effectively operate his own one-man niche, thanks to impeccable arrangements
and tightrope-walking songwriting." Includes the singles At The Indie Disco
and I Like, and live favourites Assume The Perpendicular and The
Complete Banker.
? The album has been remastered from the original tapes at the legendary Abbey
Road Studios by mastering engineer Frank Arkwright (Blur, The
Smiths.) Overseeing the audio throughout the campaign is
engineer/mixer/producer Guy Massey, whose work on the Beatles Stereo
Remasters won him a Grammy Award.
? The CD release consists of 2 discs: the original remastered album, with a second
CD of B-sides, demos and alternate versions lovingly curated by Neil Hannon,
much of which has never been heard before. The CD comes with a booklet of
photos, credits and extensive liner notes written by Neil covering the context and
inspiration behind the album and its songs.
? The LP release consists of the original remastered album, cut at Abbey Road,
packaged with a download code for the album and bonus tracks. The LP is
heavyweight black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve accompanied with photos, credits
and Neils liner notes
