Gin Soaked Boy – The Divine Comedy

This sacrilige on my favoured tipple makes me physically sick, unlike the lovely drink it is based on. The Divine Comedy of course was Dante’s recolections of his travels through hell. A more apt name for Neil Hannon’s band could not be thought of: like travelling through a hell thought up by Hitler, The Son Of Sam and Bill Hailey could not be any worse. Dandyfied pop fop, with arch lyrics, sub Lightning Seeds tunes and a truly punchable twat fronting them. How dare the Divine Comedy sing about Gin. If I ever get my hands on him, it will not be Gin he will be soaked with. Petrol Soaked Boy more like, and then we will see the Pop Singers Fear Of A Matchstick.
