Album Reviews:
Strabane has always been the ideal blank canvas for its musicians, as they freely indulge in their own preferred genre or style. A border town too often bypassed both literally and metaphorically, it is that very outsider quality that has given Strabane’s sons and daughters an artistic bite exclusive to the town. It’s why Punk, Rock, Metal, Dance and yes, even Country and Western, fits Strabane like a glove. Expressions of anger, discontent, wonder, romance, victory and loss have for a long time echoed through this valley, and now Strabane’s Hip-Hop artists are lashing their own lyrical paint brush across the historic canvas. Gerard Mc Daid aka GERARD i2 is one prime example of the above.

“This is straight from the heart, I know it’s hard to think I mean it but I need to make a start,” says GERARD i2 near the end of his debut album, ‘2 Dirt 4 the Radio’, and nothing precedes it to make the listener think otherwise.
