On Martin & Bell’s elegiac An Alternative Ulster (2018), writer turned spoken word artist Gavin Martin’s words find a perfect match in the music of multi instrumental melodic master Martin Bell. Incorporating a wistful rumination on teenage glory days, the passing of time and current day Northern Ireland, An Alternative Ulster 2018 is titled after the punk fanzine Martin published in Bangor, Northern Ireland back in 1977. The year after the ‘zine’ first appeared local band Stiff Little Fingers borrowed the Alternative Ulster name for what became an Irish punk anthem.

40 years on, Martin expounds on the meaning of the original ideal expressed in the title. Bell’s stately, neo-classical arrangement gives wings to the track.
