Fanfare for the Comic Muse is the deleted debut LP by The Divine Comedy, originally released in 1990. It has since been denied by the band's lead singer/songwriter Neil Hannon due to its stylistic difference from the band's later works, heading towards a more R.E.M.-styled jangle pop direction than their more distinctive orchestral pop output.
The title of the later The Divine Comedy album, Victory for the Comic Muse, is most likely a nod to this release. The cover art for this album is a painting by the artist Ernst Wieltschnig, It is an adaptation of a drawing of Raphael Sanzio.
