In late October 2003, a VH1 camera crew led by presenter Ameer Haleen, ambushed all four unsuspecting original members of The Alarm whilst they were literally going about their day to day business. VH1 challenged each member to reunite before the cameras, for a one off show to be filmed and shown on T.V. in North America.
The resulting 50 minute program (included here) was created and aired (in the USA only) in January 2004. Whilst very revealing in itself, the broadcast version only managed to tell a small part of The Alarm story. Here, in this completely uncut version, is the true story of how The Alarm came together only to be disbanded by lead singer Mike Peters during a controversial concert at Brixton Academy back in 1991.
Find out how drummer Nigel Twist was forced to give up rock and roll altogether and create a new life as Nigel Phillips - Public Defence Officer for the City of San Francisco. See bass player Eddie Macdonald in his post rock and roll life as a commercial photographer in the City of London and guitarist Dave Sharp taken by surprise at Big Hands public house in his hometown of Manchester, England. Hear lead singer Mike Peters reveal his version of the events that took him away from the original Alarm, the failed attempts to put the band back together and the subsequent endeavours in creating a future vision for The Alarm.
For the first time ever, see the things that were never shown on TV in the original program, the complete interviews that took place after the initial ambush (up to one hour of frank and open discussion with each of the original members).
