Rediscovered track of the month: April ’09

I came late to The Alarm, finally getting their best-of ‘Standards’ in 2005 or so. I’ve dim memories of them being on the MTV in 1987 with some video involving two guys chucking guitars through the air to each other . . . still, they stand up today with many people on Amazon saying they’re better than U2 . . I’m not so sure that’s comparing like for like but this track is what’s commonly referred to as a belter — the video may be in the London Underground but you can really feel the Welsh valleys coursing through its veins.
