    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

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


    There are few people on planet earth that are more Rock N Roll than Mark Lanegan.The former Screaming Trees vocalist and Queens Of The Stone Age member has released music through a number of different avenues over the years, the most recent being the ‘Black Pudding’ album with Duke Garwood. This followed 2012’s ‘Blues Funeral’ album with the Mark Lanegan Band. If you’re new to his music, join Dan as he looks through an incredible back-catalogue on this week’s Back & Forth.






    The Spanish have brought us many great things throughout the history of the human race. While the sublime soccer skills of their national and club teams may spring to mind before music, that isn't to say that it hasn't given us the odd gem or two. Delorean have been penning classy tunes for many years, but ‘APAR’ showcases their pedigree at an even higher level.

    Squarehead are back bolder and better than ever with their second album ‘Respect’. Their hectic tour schedule has paid off; they've become a well oiled machine that will level audiences anywhere with tunes like these.

    ‘Wise Up Ghost And Other Songs’ sees an unlikely collaboration between Elvis Costello and The Roots. Surprising as the teaming might sound, it works remarkably well over the 12 tracks. Live dates I hear you say? Yes, this would be great – fingers crossed!





    Details of this week’s competition are as follows...

    Calling Alice In Chains fans! We have four sets of (identical) prizes that include: a CD copy of their current album ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’, an AIC T-shirt, and flask.
