Episode 13 of the BIG NIGHT IN broadcast on Saturday June 13th and took viewers on another emotional journey through the personal lives of Mike and Jules Peters and a behind the scenes look into the making of the Under Attack album and film.
Seeing the Under Attack film and listening to the stories from original sessions has prompted a huge interest in the classic 2006 Alarm album, and we are fast running out of CD copies in the alarm store. The program also revealed the back story of Superchannel and the iconic red loud hailer and how it came to be immortalised on stage and on the album cover and Tour T- Shirt for the Saturday Gigs.
During the documentary footage of the Cardiff Coal Exchange Saturday Gigs concert, fans got a glimpse of the tour merchandise booth and since then we have had countless requests for the Loud Hailer Shirt to be reissued. Many of the requests have come from overseas fans who never got to see the band at that time because of Mike’s Leukaemia treatment schedules and being limited to only playing one show a month through The Saturday Gigs UK concert program.
In response to all the requests, we have delved into the archive and pulled up the original artwork (created by Mike Peters himself), and reinstated a print run of the classic vintage T-shirt which is now available to order in the store.
As always the show was broadcast live at the usual time of 9pm (UK), with Mike and Jules Peters presenting their unique mix of acoustic songs, chat, rare and unseen video content from The Alarm Archive, all from their living room in North Wales.
The show also highlighted the launch of The Alarm’s 40th Anniversary Anthology Box Set and CD Edition entitled History Repeating 1981 -2021 which is available to pre-order now at www.thealarm.com
The show played to another huge global audience and generated thousands of positive comment and reaction as it went out live across our official facebook page.
As the world begins to enter a new phase of the global lockdown and the easing of the stay at home restrictions for many of us, Mike and Jules also made a promise to continue broadcasting the Big Night In throughout the remainder of the Lockdown and will be live on air this weekend Saturday June 20th for Episode 14 which will be broadcast at 9pm UK Time on our official Alarm facebook page.
