The Alarm – Live in Philly

The Alarm – Live in Philly – 8/7/2018.  As usual an epic performance by Mike Peters and the Alarm.  A mix of old classics as well as songs from the new Album “Equals”.

The Alarm are a Welsh alternative rock/new wave band that formed in Rhyl, Wales, in 1981. Initially formed as a punk band, “The Toilets” in 1977, under lead vocalist Mike Peters, the band soon embraced rock, displaying marked influences from Welsh language and culture. By opening for acts such as U2 and Bob Dylan, they became a popular alternative rock band of the 1980s. They retain a loyal following.

The current line up is Mike Peters (obviously), Jules Peters, Steve “Smiley” Barnard and James Stevenson.  With Mike up-front they make a hell of a racket – and always manage to get the crowd up on their feet.

I also managed to nab some video footage – see Spirit of 76 here on the site – or hop over to our Youtube Channel to see Rain in the Summertime and Sixty Eight Guns.
