    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

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


    As every monstrously large band has experienced; there are as many people that hate Pearl Jam as there are who love them. The Seattle survivors have always managed to deliver strong albums, and ‘Lightening Bolt’ is no exception. Simply put, it’s a strong album from a band that still have a hunger to make music.

    Stano is one of Ireland’s unsung musical heroes (I don’t use that word likely). An artist who’s career has spanned many decades, but is on a steady upward trajectory. ‘Unknown Distance’ is his fourth album in as many years, and one that shows Stano at his creative best.

    Proving that her debut album ‘Ring’ wasn’t some sort of fluke (not that there was ever any doubt that it was), Glasser is back with album number two ‘Interriors’. It’s a wonderful collection of offbeat pop tunes that are going to enchant just about anyone who likes their music slightly off kilter will love this.
