    JAGWAR MA INTERVIEW RICKY WARWICK'S (BLACK STAR RIDERS) FIVE-TRACK SHUFFLE The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions


    Black Star Riders formed in late 2012, when members of the most recent line-up of Thin Lizzy decided to record new material, but chose not to release it under the Thin Lizzy name.

    While Thin Lizzy will continue on an occasional basis, Black Star Riders will be a full-time band, described as "the next step in the evolution of the Thin Lizzy story". The band's first album, All Hell Breaks Loose, was released in May. Vocalist Ricky Warwick brings us this week's Five-Track Shuffle.







    Sophisticated and folkie are often misleading descriptions, but they go some way to sum up part of what Snow Ghosts have created on 'A Small Murmuration'. At times ethereal, Snow Ghosts have brought us an album to cherish.

    Add ‘Everything Fall’ by Come On Live Long to the list of strong Irish debut album released this year. You can really see this album being embraced by many; the reference points are far and wide, mixed with a strong identity of its own.

    Congo Natty is one of the many guises of Michael West, although you may know him best for his work as Rebel MC (‘Street Tuff’ – 1989). ‘Jungle Revolution’ is his latest album, and it’s his most accomplished. More than 20 years on from his biggest hit, West/Natty sounds fresh and energised.
