Dan Hegarty – Buried Treasure (2015)


In 2015 RTE 2fm DJ Dan Hegarty published ‘Buried Treasure’ a book which shone some light on “overlooked, forgotten and uncrowned albums” as chosen by Dan and a host of guests. Dave Fanning recently let slip that Dan is working on a follow up so we thought it was time to have a look at what made the cut first time round and by a process of elimination what might make an appearance in part 2..

Here in order of their appearance are the Irish entries..

Dan Hegarty: (sic), Pugwash, And So I watch You From Afar, Sack, Nine Wassies From Bainne, Si Schroeder, The Frames, The Devlins, Blink, The Shades, Microdisney, God Is An Astronaut, Aslan, Compulsion, Cap Pas Cap, Power Of Dreams, The Walls, JJ72, Humanzi, Bantum, Lir, Mono Band, Super Extra Bonus Party, U2, Marxman, Gavin Friday, Engine Alley, Jeff Martin, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Will De Burca, Ash and Juno Falls.

The guest contributors: Van Morrison, The Mary Janes, Toasted Heretic, The Jimmy Cake, The Golden Horde, Whipping Boy, Rollerskate Skinny, The Redneck Manifesto, Johnny Gallagher & Friends, Woodstar, Autamata, Kerbdog, Noise Control, The Chapters, Simple Kid, Philip Lynott and Republic Of Loose.
