The Duckworth Lewis Method: Back For A Second Innings!

~ New Album ‘Sticky Wickets’ out July 1st
& Single ‘It's Just Not Cricket’ out July 1st ~



The Ashes are nearly upon us and it will soon be time to choose some jolly good tunes to play on your radiogram.
Don't be stumped for choice! There is one album just waiting to jump into your ears and bowl over your musical tastebuds!

We present "Sticky Wickets" - your companion to the Summer of 2013!!



The delightful Duckworth (Thomas Walsh) and Lewis (Neil Hannon) have notched up more hits than runs and are delighted to be unveiling their new collection of Cricket Pop stylings on Divine Comedy Records.

The follow up to 2009's Ivor Novello nominated debut, this canny 12-track cricket fantasia was penned and produced by The Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh of power pop troubadours, Pugwash. The legendary Guy Massey took on skipper's duties and recorded and mixed this fine opus to the game.

From the blistering psychedelic rock of the album’s title track, through the delicate ‘day in the life’ portrait of ‘The Umpire,' to the top-notch 80s funk-pop of ‘Line And Length’, ‘Sticky Wickets’ is a definite all-rounder and brimming with charm.

It features a cornucopia of vocal talent; Henry Blofeld on ‘It's Just Not Cricket’, Daniel Radcliffe on ‘Third Man’, Stephen Fry on ‘Judd’s Paradox’ and the whole of Lewis’ local Taverners team, The Cavaliers, on the Python-esque ‘The Laughing Cavaliers’.

Make sure you catch the band live when they play Shepherd’s Bush Empire!

From the desk of DLM HQ:

Our favourite Cricket Pop pioneers release their brand new spangly single on 1st July entitled "It's Just Not Cricket"



You can buy "It's Just Not Cricket" from iTunes RIGHT NOW! Yes RIGHT NOW!


The first offering from their nimble-witted cricket fantasia "Sticky Wickets" delivers an anecdotal romp that P.G. Wodehouse would be proud of!

Featuring the legendary Henry "Blowers" Blofeld as narrator and utilising a piano, guitar, trumpet (from Billy The Trumpet), whistles and even handclaps, the track celebrates the band's everlasting love of bat-and-ball.

PS: Did I mention that you can get this lovely digital only single from iTunes right now? Wink


Splendid.
