THE ALARM - EPONYMOUS [REMASTERED] CD

Painstakingly put together by Mike Peters from original sources, the Eponymous 1981-1983 album brings together the first four Alarm singles and B-sides including all the tracks that featured on the band’s self titled debut US EP release, and for a first time since 1983, a reissue of the rare – Sixty Eight Guns [Part Two] b-side.

All titles have been re-mastered from the original master tapes by mastering engineer Pete Maher (u2, White Stripes….) under the supervision of Mike Peters.

Eponymous 1981-1983 features an iconic cover photo that has been sourced from one of the eras leading photographers – Erica Echenberg.
The CD version features complete lyrics, recording and production information, plus comprehensive sleeve notes with quotes from original band members.
The artwork also features many additional and unseen photographs exclusive to the format making this release the most comprehensive in Alarm History.
