A friend of mine asked if I fancied a night out to see The Alarm during their recent "Release The Pressure" tour. Remembering a few of their songs from the 80's I thought why not... Not really sure what I was expecting but.... What a night.

This is the album that I guess the tour was promoting. Direct Action, Plastic Carrier Bags and One guitar being my personal favourites. A mix of tracks, both rock and ballads and quite often both combined !

Had to download this the following day (along with some of their back catalogue). Hasn't been off my car stereo or mp3 since. I've got the whole family rocking along to Direct Action.

If you haven't come across The Alarm before or like myself remember tracks from the 80's, give it a try. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

What can I tell you about Alarm main man Mike Peters? He never writes a duff tune, he gets better and better each year, if he was 25 years younger making music this good he would be the biggest star in the country. They are making a film called 'Vinyl' in North Wales (where he comes from) based on his genius hopefully that will bring him the recognition he deserves when it comes out. This album like all his recent albums (Guerrila Tactics,Under Attack, In the Poppy Fields is brilliant,catchy rock n' roll.
The Alarm's small but loyal following know how lucky they are to be able to enjoy these great tunes. This music is the perfect antedote to all that is wrong with the music industry. A nation that produced the Beatles and the Stones spends Saturday nights watching Rubbish Kareoke instead they should playing this album very load. This is British heritage right here on your Ipod enjoy!!

Well it's finally here and the wait was worth it. From the opening bars of 'Direct Action' to the beautiful closer 'After The Rock and Roll Has Gone' this is a tour de force of an album.
A number of the songs of course appeared on the 'Counter Attack Collective' a couple of years back and they have been tweaked and given a nice make over by Gilby Clark (Guns and Roses)and by Mike Peters himself. 'Release the Pressure' is fantastic and although I thought Ranking Roger was going to make a toasting contribution but didn't, it is indeed one of the standout songs of the album. The Alarm have not put that many cover versions on their albums over the years and the inclusion of Willie Nile's 'One Guitar' is excellent. It fits in well with the sound of The Alarm in 2010.
Throughout the album you can hear bits and pieces of the bands influences and that only makes it sound more solid. They begin the 'Release the Pressure Tour' on April 13th and you will not be disappointed in the live performances of tracks that make up this album.
Mike Peters is one of the finest and most genuine rockers still treading the boards 30 years after he began and he always impresses me with his spot on lyrical barbs.
Well worth picking this album up I reckon.
