Germany 2022 [no label, 1CD]

Rudolstadt Festival. Große Bühne Heinepark, Rudolstadt, Germany; July 9, 2022. Very good digital broadcast.

Thanks to Tomyoungster for sharing the show at Dime.

Orchestral pop of the ’60s runs through all his work. Neil Hannon loves grand gestures and abundant arrangements but luckily he loves musical variety, too. And since he is a gifted poet, the meaningful subleties and refinements of songwriting always come into their own.

Therefore Hannon and his band The Divine Comedy have managed to play up front for more than 30 years. Right now he is touring Europe with his best of album Charmed Life and opens a chamber of marvels which dates back to 1990, but still keeps everything you need for today’s playlist: Catchy melodies, delightfully odd stories and lots of humour. The Divine Comedy – LIVE at Rudolstadt Festival on 9th July! -

  3. My big un is divine. Swappers always says so while I’m cornholing him.

  8. Led Zeppelin is a quartet, consisting of John Paul Jones on drums, John Bonham on bass and singer Robert Plant, as well as Page. Considering the group was only formed a few months back, it’s remarkably tight and together. LOL.. John Bonham on Bass

    By Jimmy Page on Feb 2, 2023

  9. Comparisons with Cream are as inevitable as they are unfair. Page is not yet in Eric Clapton’s class, but he has the potential. Bonham is not Jack Bruce but, likewise, he’s on the right road. Jones is a fine drummer with the precision timing, but Ginger Baker has that scene all wrapped up.

    Led Zeppelin is not Cream, nor will it fill the spot left behind by Cream. Nobody will. But the Zeppelin outfit has a thing going of its own, and there’s little doubt that that thing is going to be very successful

    By Jimmy Page on Feb 2, 2023

  10. LMAO..Led Zeppelin is not Cream….Page is not yet in Claptons class. Are you fucking kiddding me. John Paul Jones is a great drummer but not in Ginger Bakers class. LMAO

  11. I played at The Rock Pile, Toronto, with Led Zeppelin

  13. “I wish that for just one time you could step inside my shoes
    Then you’d know what a drag it is just to see you . . . . . . “

    Homophobic drivel, racist shite and bunch of no-mark trolls with little to no interest or knowledge of music . . . . . jeez do you not just get tired of being so thick?
    Dumb as soup . . . . . . >>sigh<<

  14. Hey swappers, us Yanks are still living in world war times and that’s why we keep calling you ‘limeys’. There are some clever people in the States too… Honest!

    By HHH on Feb 3, 2023

  15. Just had another thought. We will soon be able to forget the name calling and everything else when Putin presses that button. That slit-eyed North Korean will want to join in and you can’t forget the chinks. Then the West will kick off and global warming… forget it. That will be a thing of the past as we all say: adieu!

    By HHH on Feb 3, 2023

  16. Swappers, people on here bait the hook and you rise to it every time. Read your posts again, you’re a self-righteous arrogant pensioner who thinks you know more than other people… I really don’t think you do, you just like to think you’re superior. You’re not.Your’e a rather dim old man with no sense of humor and certainly no sense of irony, if the name of your blog is anything to go by.
    Rightup had your number - just fuck off old chap, eh?

    By Dumb as soup on Feb 3, 2023

  17. Guys, I offered swappers a truce but apparently he don’t talk with people like me. Ain’t that so, swappy?

    By Rightup Dias on Feb 3, 2023

  18. hi Ed, it’s good to see a post from you again, i hope you’ve been well. It’s a shame that bigO has allowed this to happen, but the music’s still here. take care.

  19. When Germany had the blitz,es war eine verdammte Schande that they missed whopper swapper and his whole filthy ugly family. And Ed Mossaad, you sound like a schmutzige dreckige Schwuchtel. We need to rid this place of jüdisch Stück Dreck

    By Gunther Strasser on Feb 3, 2023

  20. I tried to talk with swappers but being the arrogant self serving prick that he is, he didnt speak to me either. aint that right whopper swapper

    By I Hate Whitey on Feb 3, 2023

  21. He don’t talk to assholes, Whitey, that’s why he don’t talk to me or my friends.
