The Alarm Greatest Hits Live is a live album by The Alarm with an ironic title.
Beyond the song Sixty Eight Guns which reached #17 in the UK singles chart, the band didn’t have a string of big hits.
It was recorded at the Shepherds Bush Empir in, London on 15th December 2000 with the exception of five tracks (2,5,7,8,13) which were recorded at The Gathering in 2001

This is good, energetic music with singer Mike Peters backed by a new band performing these melodic rockers with enthusiasm. It’s well worth getting if you’re a fan or your have good memories of seeing the band performing live.
This Welsh band deserved more success than they received but they never had the image and PR of bands like the Irish U2 and Scottish Simple Minds.
