The Duckworth Lewis Method, a.k.a. Neil Hannon and Pugwash’s Thomas Walsh, have posted two tracks online from their upcoming Irish cricket concept album (yes, you read that correctly!).
You can check them out at www.myspace.com/dlmethod.
Already the subject of a major discourse in the English Guardian, ‘Jiggery Pokery’ includes such choice couplets as “How such a ball could be bowled I do not know/But, if you ask me, if it had been a cheese roll it would never have got past me” while ‘The Age Of Revolution’ is a classic slice of pop whimsy.
“It’s turned out even better than we thought it would… which was pretty damn good!” says Neil Hannon who’s taken to wearing W.G. Grace-style whiskers. “The album’s being mastered on Friday in Abbey Road by Geoff Pesch who did the last Lily Allen record – that’s where the similarities end by the way – and will be coming out in either late June or early July.”
While mainly constructed in Dublin, one recording session took place in London where Phil Jupitus, Alexander Armstrong and the IT Crowd’s Matt Berry all lent a hand. And, we have a picture to prove it!
