Word In Your Ear Proudly Presents The Duckworth Lewis Method!
Monday 8th July: The Thomas Lord Suite at Lord's.


Tickets are on sale now!


"Pop music and cricket have something in common.

They are simultaneously harmless amusements and the most important things in the world.



Their affinity was first celebrated at album-length in the 2009 record The Duckworth Lewis Method, in which The Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh of Pugwash sang of Empire and Twenty20, Gatting and the ball of the century and travelling to Pakistan in a VW camper van to meet Javed Miandad.

The album found acclaim all over the world, not least in the offices of The Word where is was, as they used to say, "a fixture on the turntable". As David Hepworth of the magazine put it, "cricket and melodic pop music are two of England's greatest gifts to the world - and it takes a couple of Irishmen to remind us of the fact."

Now it's 2013 and the Australians are back, as are The Duckworth Lewis Method with Sticky Wickets, another glorious long-playing celebration of the bewitching allure of the great game.

The show is organised by Word In Your Ear, performance wing of the late lamented Word Magazine, and The Cricketer, the world's foremost cricket magazine."

Did you see this one ? - the Guardian has abandoned its 'too cool for school' attitudue to music to celebrate a little inspired cricket-related daftness. Four stars Smile
