Thanks for that Gaz. A great little interview even if :

"And referencing Oscar Wilde, Steve McQueen and the space-dog Laika in the same song. "

is wrong!!

Why is it that none of these interviewers can be bothered to do their research? If you don't count Fanfare... (and even Neil doesn't) the Divine Comedy didn't really become a "band" until Regen. Thus, for the majority of the time, the Divine Comedy has, in actualite, been just Neil. Plus a few trusted collaboraters...

Yet all of these interviewers seem to think that Neil going solo is something a bit new and daring...

Unless I've missed him referencing the doggy in the "Absent Friends" SONG. Does it bark?


But is there not a verse that runs "Laika flew through inky blue til Laika neared the atmosphere, then Laika knew Laika's life was through"? Or am I hallucinating lyrics again?*

You are correct, sir. I did wonder when I first saw the suggestion the journo was wrong. Music journos get enough wrong without being picked up for getting wrong what they get right, Wink

Like the guy in the RTE Guide always calls it "Fanfare for the Common Muse". Feckin' Alan Corr! It didn't bother me until I was at a table quiz and the writer of the questions had obviously used the RTE Guide as his reference book (pfff!) and I didn't get the point because I gave the actual correct answer (God forbid!). Even detailing the track list couldn't get me the point.

I have to stop myself calling it that sometimes. Probably due to the similarly titled Emerson, Lake and Palmer thing. Not that I like ELP in anyway, but that doesn't stop me mixing the two up.

Poor Laika, I've been thinking about her a lot since the release of the album. I even looked her piccy up on the internet. One site said she was in space almost a week. She must have come down somewhere musn't she? or did she just drift off into space Sad ? does anyone know?

That would truly piss me off! Most amusing error I've seen in relation to Fanfare was when Neil was credited with the composition of Fanfare For The Common Man. (Poor Mr Copland...)

PS: Thanks for the link, Gaz.
