Bang Goes The Knighthood - Divine Comedy Records 2010
The immediately most catchy song of the album is the single "At the Indie Disco" which somehow never managed to be a real new hit; this is also a song that could easily be mistaken for a Kinks / Ray Davies recording.
The album opens with two great songs; "Down in the Streets Below", is a fine example of Hannon's ability to more complex songwriting, while "The Complete Banker" is another example of music with much in common with the aforementioned Ray Davies. In the finest end I would also put songs like "The Lost Art of Conversation" and "Assume the Perpendicular". Among the lighter and very catchy songs you’ll find "Neapolitan Girl" and "I Like". There are no actual "throwaways" albeit I find "Can You Stand Upon One Leg" just a bit too silly.
It is now nearly six years since the release of the album and fortunately, a new album has been announced for release early here in 2016.
