Songs from 30 years revisited and re-imagined

elebrating 30 years in rock and roll Welsh band The Alarm, led by Mike Peters re-record a number of songs that span their career but which only the more committed fan will be familiar. Highlights include the early live favourite from circa 1984 'Unbreak the Promise', 'How the mighty fall' a oft overlooked album track that wears its Dylan influence proudly (and contains prehaps one of Peters best observational lyrics). The classic 'acoustic punk' Alarm sound is much in evidence including some soaring harmonica solos. 'Only the Thunder' is prehaps the outstanding track, recorded much closer to its stirring live rendition, answering critics who say Peters struggles to capture in the studio the sound and passionate fury of his bands live performances. Also download 'Peace Agreement', 'Fade in' and 'Howling Wind'


I first saw the alarm in 1984 and followed them all the way to the final show at Brixton into the new era. This "reworking" of many alarm classics is nothing short of a masterpiece!!
The introduction of For Freedom is particularly poignant for me, being the first song i heard them play live.
For me the "new" Alarm are much better than the original. Considering the health problems surrounding Mike Peters' life i find it incredible that he has the appetite to produce such a great new album with a great band behind him. From every drum beat, through every song the album is fantastic and proves that you don't need to win x factor to be the next big thing. If only the nation would listen to stuff like this more often then maybe the airwave would be much more tolerable.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

With idealistic spirit, a powerhouse live show, and bigger than big hair, the Alarm were part of an early-'80s wave of bands (the Call, Big Country, and the Waterboys among them) who dealt in soaring anthems inspired by the righteous idealism of punk. Clearly influenced by the impassioned political fervor of the Clash, the Alarm also worked in a mostly acoustic, folk-punk vein that provided a counterpoint to their hard-driving guitar rockers. Their stage look was unquestionably a product of the '80s,...
