    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    He's the artist that has reinvented himself more times that any of us could possibly remember. The Purple one, The Artist, The Artist Formerly Known As Prince; what ever name he's gone by over the years, he's never failed to keep his subjects guessing.

    Dan will delve into his extensive catalogue of music, which in geographical terms is the size of the Grand Canyon. Don't believe me? His Wikipedia is the length of a petition!


    They come from that land known as Australia; they are Jagwar Ma. I've
    been waiting for this album for quite some time, and after multiple listens, it lives up to all my somewhat unrealistic expectations.~

    'Unit 1' arrived on planet earth at the beginning of the month. Nanu Nanu have put together a fine debut album that will win the followers where ever they want to go.

    It's been a while since we've had an album from Queens Of The Stone Age, but 'Like Clockwork' ends the drought if you want to call it that. It's Number 1 in the Irish Album Chart this week - a worthy No 1 too.
