Live at Whelan's, Dublin Steve Cummins
The speakers in Whelan’s may need replacement. So loud were the 22-20’s, their rock and blues infused numbers were still ringing in my ears two days after they’d left the stage. At times the Wexford street venue must have shook with the noise.

TORI'S STORY Joe Jackson
Tori Amos has rocketed to international prominence with her album "Little Earthquakes", but behind the public success story lies the private trauma of a young woman who was raped at the age of 22. In an uncompromisingly honest interview with Joe Jackson, Tori talks about that terrible experience, it's lasting scars and how her music has helped to set her free again.

A Good Heart Shilpa Ganatra
Maria McKee wrote this track for Fergal Sharkey when she was only 19, and 22 years after it was a hit for him (that long ago?), she’s finally claimed it as her own. The two performers have in common sitting-on-a-washing-machine shaky vocals that grate after a while, but if you didn’t like Mr. Sharkey’s version, hers is original enough to surprise, perhaps.

Highs And Lows Shilpa Ganatra
Featuring former Angels Of Mons man Stephen Robinson, the track ‘Highs And Lows’ has travelled with him in a re-recorded form. The racing refrain, which Foo Fighters fans would just scream like little girls for, will be familiar as the snippet used in the Discover Ireland ad. With the full song, you’re not missing much – the line “All these highs and lows” is repeated no less than 22 times in its two minutes, leaving room for little else.

Don't Give Up Phil Udell
Can it really be seven years since Donaghy penned the Sugababes ‘Overload’, jumped ship and largely disappeared? Despite high hopes, her solo career has been faltering at best. Now on her second label, it seems strange to talk about last chances for a 22-year-old. Although dramatic in scope and intention, ‘Don’t Give It Up’ might still not be the right kind of record to bring her back into the limelight, proving as it does a clumsy collision between lightweight pop verses and Kate Bush style chorus.

Though terrifically ho-hum by today’s athletic standards, Deep Throat remains the most famous porno in cinema’s history.

As the major force in the "Club of '22", whose attempts to oust Charlie Haughey from the leadership of Fianna Fail finally resulted in Dessie O'Malley's departure to form the Progressive Democrats, Charlie McCreevy was long considered a thorn in the side of the Taoiseach by the party faithful. Ironically then, it was McCreevy himself who was to be instrumental in setting up the talks with the P.D.s following the recent election which would result in Charles J. Haughey continuing to stay in power in a new kind of coalition government. Generally regarded as one of the most candid of Irish politicians, Charlie McCreevy here lives up to his reputation as he shoots from the hip on matters both political and personal.

TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE NORTH Niall Stanage
The winds of change have been blowing through Northern Ireland in 1998, with the endorsement of the Belfast Agreement and the establishment of the Assembly. But that only made it more likely that extreme loyalists would portray the march to Drumcree church near Portadown, and the July 12th parades, as an opportunity for Protestants and Orangemen to make a final stand. It was surely shaping up for a season of discontent – until the Quinn brothers were murdered in a loyalist sectarian petrol bomb attack on their home. By Niall Stanage. Photos: Peter Matthews.

The Minister Has His Say Adrienne Murphy
Six weeks ago, Hot Press presented a detailed set of 27 Questions on the mandatory fluoridation of the water supply in Ireland to the Minister of State at the Department of Health with responsibility for the policy, Alex White TD. Since then, there has been a further upsurge in the campaign against fluoridation, with a growing wave of international opposition being mirrored here. In the past month alone, Israel has decided to end its policy of mandatory fluoridation, while in Ireland, Skibbereen Town Council has voted to oppose the policy – and will be lobbying for a similar vote among town councils all over the country. The responses from the Minister to our 27 Questions arrived at Hot Press Central this week. They amount to the clearest statement yet of the basis for the policy in Ireland – giving those opposed to fluoridation the opportunity to put the official explanations under fresh scrutiny. It will be fascinating to see just how both opponents of fluoridation, and indeed the general public, react to what the Minister has to say. For now, however, this is – definitively – the official position on fluoridation in Ireland, from the pen of the Minister himself.

Murder In An Irish Town Eamonn McCann
In September 1988, John Gallagher drove to Lifford, collected a rifle from behind the wardrobe in his father’s bedroom and headed for Sligo, where he murdered his ex-girlfriend Anne Gillespie, and her mother Annie. When the case came to court John Gallagher pleaded – and was found – guilty but insane and he was remanded to the Central Mental Hospital in Dundrum. In July 2000, Gallagher successfully escaped from Dundrum and absconded to England, before returning to Northern Ireland, where he was able to live freely, because of the unique absence of an extradition treaty for people in his position. Earlier this month, in a bizarre twist, apparently in the hope of taking advantage of a bequest from his father, Gallagher turned up at the Central Mental Hospital and handed himself in. It’s open to him to apply to the Health Review Board for release on the grounds that he does not now suffer from a mental illness. The Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter, has already acknowledged the possibility that he might be released within a matter of weeks. But as far back as 1991, in a special investigation carried out for Hot Press, Eamonn McCann questioned the original verdict of the court – and whether Gallagher was ever ‘insane’ within the meaning intended by the act. In the light of the growing controversy about the case, we reprint here in full the extraordinary story as it was originally published in Hot Press.

The Hurt Inside Joe Jackson
At the time of writing indications are that Tori Amos’ ‘Cornflake Girls’ single will hit the No.1 spot in the British charts this week. Celebrations may indeed be in order – but for Tori right now there are far more burning issues to be talked through and dealt with. In an extraordinarily intimate, open and at times devastatingly honest interview, she talks about the horrific knife-point rape documented in ‘Me And A Gun’, the lingering wounds inflicted on her by the experience and the difficult healing process she has begun – including, she says, accepting the ‘prostitute’ in herself. Along the way she challenges a wide range of assumptions on love, sex, violence, religion, masturbation, feminishm, lesbianism and the main man himself, Jesus Christ. By Joe Jackson.
