The best gigs and albums of the year
My last ever Irish festival.
Teenage Fanclub released their first album in nearly five years with the release of Man Made. They brought the tour to Belfast and played in the iconic Mandela Hall at Queen's University. Teenage Fanclub are fantastic live and are one of my favourite bands. They never disappoint live. I always make a point of going … Continue reading 2005 – May to December

I wouldn't have seen Kerbdog as trash metal but they fitted in with alternative rock at the time. For me, this next one R.E.M. at … Continue reading 1995
