    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

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


    He's been dubbed 'an East Midlands Bob Dylan', a compliment that Bugg took, but hasn't dwelled or rested on such a reference point. He arrived at Eurosonic last January as one of the acts to see, and didn't disappoint. Since then, things have continued to get bigger and bigger for the man who has yet to reach the grand age of 20!

    Recorded by NPO/3FM (Netherlands) in collaboration with VRT/Studio Brussel (Belgium), ARD-WDR (Germany), SR/P3 (Sweden) and BBC (UK) for Eurosonic.




    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.
