Division Bell



The term “Division Bell” refers to England and Australia’s parliamentary sessions.

If there is a disagreement about a matter, then a vote must be taken. The House is said to be “divided” on the issue, and the division is rectified by a vote. At this point, the Division Bell is rung and parliamentarians must immediately proceed to the House. When the Division Bell stops, the doors are shut and anyone who is late misses the vote.

Thus, the Division Bell has an important role in communication and conflict resolution. The album title was suggested by Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy author, Douglas Adams, which is why he is listed in the album’s credits.
