    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

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



    Often compared to Primal Scream, Delakota were a band that shone brightly and briefly. Their one and only album was aptly titled ‘One Love’. It’s a pity how this has slipped to the outer reaches of music’s stratosphere. This week, Dan revisits this hugely underrated album.
