You know how you have these "musical guilty pleasures" that you don't want anyone to know about? Well, I'm admitting right now, two of mine are The Alarm and the Psychedelic Furs. I'm not even guilty about it, and judging from the response when I dj an 80s night, and the number of regular requests I get, neither is anyone else.
So I'm guessing the Rockin’ The Colonies show upcoming at the Pacific Amphitheatre is going to be sold out: The Alarm, The Psychadelic Furs and the Fixx (a band I truly do NOT enjoy, but I can be parking the car while they're on)!
The Alarm has a new album: Under Attack, which is group-founder Mike Peters’ first release with the Alarm since his recent battle against leukemia. Joining him on this album are ex-Gene Loves Jezebel guitarist James Stevenson, ex-The Cult and Mission UK bassist Craig Adams and Stiff Little Fingers drummer Steve Grantley. “Superchannel,” the album’s first single, went to #1 in the UK .
Coming up, The Alarm is set to release a series of EPs called Counter Attack.
Now, I've already seen the Psychedelic Furs many times and they are GREAT. Plus, your $25 ticket price to the Pacific Amphitheatere (before Ticketmaster rape charges, of course) gets you in to the OC Fair FREE. Cowabunga!
