The Alarm - Toronto, RPM Club 3-01-86



[FM-Broadcast]

I gotta admit that when The Alarm from Wales appeared on the scene in the 80s I was judging a book by its cover, in other words their looks made me think they were another one of the loads of New Wave or U2-clone bands... There were many of them back then and while there were some really good ones, there also were a lot that just didn't rock.... At least not in my opinion.

Not much later I saw them play a few songs live on TV and was blown away!!! A guy I knew taped it and so I listened to it over and over again. These guys ROCKED with so much raw energy and enthusiasm I was speechless. Shame on me for judging them by some funny hairdos!!!! I learned a valuable lesson as a music enthusiast: Close your eyes and open your ears and heart for the music!!!

Anyway, I went to buy their records and they were great, too. In later years they changed their sound a bit towards a classic rock sound without betraying their roots, but with less success than they deserved... I also went to see them live several times - ah, good times!!

Here's a fantastic show from 1986, I'll post some more in the future. Enjoy!!!

  2. Excellent! Ironically the only time I saw U2 was when The Alarm supported them! Wow. They tried really hard and I have loved em ever since. Saw them again just a few years ago and they still have the passion.
