The Divine Comedy - Bang Goes The Knighthood (2020 Re-Issue)

This is a pre-order item and is expected 21st August 2020.

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 band's classic albums. The reissues will be released by Neil Hannon’s own label Divine Comedy Records.

'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 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 Neil's liner notes.
