    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

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


    His new album ‘Innocents’ is due out later this month, so in anticipation, Dan features the music of Moby in this week’s Back & Forth. He became popular in the early 1990s, but 1999 was his year; the album ‘Play’ has left an indelible imprint on music. Since then, he’s had a steady stream of music. Amazingly, he hasn’t left it more than three years between albums since debuting in 1992.
