    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    Buried Treasure: 'SK1' by Simple Kid, The Prodigy - Back & Forth, and an interview with C.R. Avery - The Alternative - Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions.


    Tunes like 'Their Law', 'Firestarter', 'Omen', and 'Smack My Bitch Up' are some of the numerous anthems that The Prodigy have created through their lengthy career.

    The band have never conformed to any particular trend or genre, which is one of the reasons that they're still so influential and highly thought of. Dan features music from The Prodigy in this week's Back & Forth.







    This is one of the unsung classic albums since the turn of the century. Cork born, London-based Kieran Mac Feely had a way of putting songs together like few others. 'SK1' is the first of two albums that he released before his announced that he was going to cease making music. Dan will be playing tracks from this truly outstanding album all week on The Alternative.
