It's actually pretty damn' fine, though not as good as the new Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam album, which, until Monday evening, you can hear here: http://music.msn.com/music/listeningbooth/.

`fading in the evening sun/hopelessly Panglossian.' You've got to take to your heart an album with that line in it. Also an album which sets the 20/20 debate to music.

I agree. But do try the DK&BDS album.

Ah, this is by that Divine Comedy bloke, Neil Hannon, isn't it? Him and someone else. I've got a couple of Divine Comedy CDs. I'll have to have a listen to this, even though cricket is the most boring pastime on the planet. I say pastime quite deliberate as I don't really consider it a sport.

I love The Divine Comedy. Anyone who can write a catchy song about the National Express deserves to be knighted.

Ah, now there's a song to put a smile on your face. "Mini-skirts were in style, when she danced down the aisle back in 63! But its hard to get by when your arse is the size of a small country!!"

The Absent Friends album is my favourite by quite a long way.

I agree. `Come Home Billy Bird' is a marvellous little song, as is `Freedom Road.' They just seem so effortless but everything's in the right place.

"someone else"

Thomas Walsh of Pugwash.

It's a toss up as to which of the two of them looks more like he could be playing for W.G. Grace's XI.

Agreed. And if ever they make a 'live' version of Captain Pugwash, Mr Walsh is their man.

I've been googling this, but I can't find it. Isn't there a song by Robert Wyatt about cricket? Something like `When The Batsman Leaves The Crease' or like that?

Sorry. I typed the entire thing the wrong way round. I seem to remember there's a song by (I think) Robert Wyatt (although now I think about it, it might have been Roy Harper) called something like `When The Batsman Leaves The Crease,' and I've been googling it without success. It's the only other cricketing rock song I can think of.

When the old cricketer leaves the crease, you never know whether he's gone, but sometimes you're catching a fleeting glimpse of the twelfth man at silly mid on, and it could be geoff and it could be john with a new balls sting in his tail, and it could be me , and it could be theeeeee and it could be the sting in the ale Who by? dunno

That's the one! And Google tells us it was Roy Harper. Thank you, kind stranger. That one's been driving me mildly nuts.
