Greatest Irish Bands, a Various Artists Compilation. Released 24 February on Hip-O.3/5(5).
My favorites are the punk bands, it's good to see The Undertones (Teenage Kicks), The Pogues (Fairytale of New York - classic track) and Stiff Little Fingers (Alternative Ulster). There's plenty of big hits on the CD from U2, Van Morrison, Cranberries, Sinead /5.
Stiff Little Fingers' "Alternative Ulster" starts off with a rarity for '70s punk, a fairly lengthy solo guitar intro. Over the course of around 20 seconds, lead guitarist Henry Cluney lazily develops the song's central riff, repeating it slightly faster each time before finally playing a traditional punk opening riff as a cue for the rest of the band to come in.

Alternative Ulster is a great magazine for NI. The best we used to get was Kerang or the god awful NME. I get why people think it sucks that it doesn't cover local music as much as it should, but lets be honest. If it just covered local music then it wouldn't have survived for as long as it has/5(6).
