This Ain’t No Disco is back!
After a two-year hiatus, the online Irish alternative music programme This Ain’t No Disco returns for its highly anticipated second season this Christmas. TAND’s Patreon members will have exclusive access on December 22, and the show will go out on worldwide release on Christmas Day.
The new season will feature a cross-section of Ireland’s thriving music and spoken word scene, representing some of the most talented yet under-represented visionaries in Ireland today. This dynamic audio-visual showcase seeks to examine not only where the boundaries are being pushed today, but also where this music is rooted both historically and geographically.
Hosted by DJ (and former host of the cult 90’s TV program, No Disco) Donal Dineen, This Ain’t No Disco is voluntarily produced by a skeleton crew of friends and music enthusiasts, directed by music documentarian and award-winning cinematographer Myles O’Reilly.
Donal Dineen said, “There is an embarrassment of riches in Irish music at present, so Myles and I try to pick out strands of golden thread and stitch each episode together with due care. There is a collaboration of sorts at the heart of each edition.”
“For the new series,” he adds, “we plan to spread the net wider and dig deeper again, to unearth these stories. It’s just a snapshot of what’s happening. To map the whole rich tapestry would be impossible so we concentrate on important parts of the pattern as we see it and do our best to faithfully present that in the best light possible. For historical purposes alone, we feel it’s an important endeavour.”
The second season of This Ain’t No Disco will comprise of four 1-hour long episodes to be released quarterly over 2020 via Patreon, Facebook, and thisaintnodisco.ie, with the first episode going out on worldwide release on Christmas Day.
