But you'll have to go to Northern Ireland...

U2, ASH, ELVIS COSTELLO, DAVID HOLMES, IGGY POP and [a][/a] and are amongst the artists who feature in a photo exhibition opening in BELFAST today (October 20).

‘Shot By Both Sides’ is billed a collection of images that define the ongoing spirit of alternative Ulster and feature big name stars alongside a succession of local bands from the last

four decades.

” We’re hoping that it reflects the excitement, the

abrasion and the plurality of the music scene here,” said event curator and former NME writer Stuart Bailie. “It’s a scattershot story. Our history’s loaded and the hits keep coming.”

The exhibition – which features many rarely seen pictures – runs at the Belfast Old Museum Art Centre until November 6.
