To celebrate the release of ‘Shellshock Rock: Alternative Blasts From Northern Ireland 1977-1984‘ on Cherry Red Records, Stephen McCauley recently hosted a special edition of his BBC Radio Ulster show. It featured very enjoyable interviews with filmmaker John T Davis and Brian Young of RUDI interspersed with tracks from the 3 CD / DVD release. Said boxset now tops at least one Christmas wishlist.

Some of our favourite bands come from Derry so when we heard that Radio Foyle’s Stephen McCauley was doing an ‘Electric Mainline’ special looking at some of the best alternative acts to come out of that neck of the woods in the 1990s we scrambled for a blank cassette to capture the occasion. As you might imagine the music is interspersed with some insightful details by Stephen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did. The show featured tracks  from That Petrol Emotion, The Carrellines, The Turtle Assassins, Cuckoo, Schtum (pictured), LUKiC, Gradapenda Rosindale, Clearshot, The Screaming Bin Lids, The New Capris, DJ-VU, Rare and The Deadly Engines.  As usual if you have any sessions/interviews (Fanning or other) by any of these bands please get in touch. And if any other DJs feel like doing something similar for your city of choice we’d love to hear about it!
