Sticky Wickets

Divine Comedy Records


Released: 1st Jul 2013


lp + cd

Released: 1st Jul 2013


the divine comedy’s neil hannon together with thomas walsh delivers 12 beautifully eccentric, catchy songs on the always fascinating subject of cricket.

a brilliant concept album, touching on a huge variety of musical genres while exploring the beautiful game, from the raga influenced, orchestral psych-pop of 'boom afridi' & angular talking heads electro-funk of 'line & length' to the elo in a music hall styled lead track ‘it’s just not cricket’ (featuring legendary tms commentator henry ‘blowers’ blofeld). other special guests include david ‘bumble’ lloyd, daniel radcliffe, matt berry & stephen fry. a wonderful, whimsical collection, released just in time for the ashes & a glorious summer of cricket.
