Introducing The Duckworth Lewis Method
It is with a great sense of honour and humility that I come before you today to announce the forthcoming release of possibly the least necessary album of recent years.
Ladles and Jellyspoons, I give you The Duckworth Lewis Method!!! A kaleidoscopic musical adventure through the beautiful and rather silly world of cricket.
Few have attempted to encapsulate the King of Sports in song. None have succeeded. UNTIL NOW!!
Mr Duckworth and myself have dedicated ourselves to this end, and I’m delighted to announce that we are on the verge of a fabled alchemy.
So go and get your pads on, take your place in the sun, and salivate in expectation for the sound of Summer ‘09:
THE DUCKWORTH LEWIS METHOD!
The Duckworth Lewis Method is a project conceived by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy and Thomas Walsh of Pugwash in their spare moments to celebrate their mutual enjoyment of cricket.
Mr Duckworth and Mr Lewis would like to make it clear that this mad yet utterly enjoyable album will be separate to their own endeavours in the musical world - in other words, yes there will be two albums from Neil this year- this and a Divine Comedy one.
