A major achievment!! 45 RPM just played on BBC Radio 1 on the weekly top-40 show, It was #28 for weekly sales figures. This is the first time an Alarm-related song has been in the top-40 for nearly 15 years! The song was played in it’s entirety and the DJ read a short blurb about the song actually being by “The Alarm” and how they changed their name for the single to get a “fair shake” from the music industry. It looks like it worked!!! The song sounded great too, and it stood-out among the mostly sythesized/over-produced crap on the rest of the countdown.
More later, from the MPO.
