"Sometimes there's a song in my brain/
And I feel that my heart knows the refrain/
I guess it's just the music that brings on nostalgia
For an age yet to come" - Pete Shelley (Nostalgia - Buzzcocks)

June 30th 1991
On this day in history, 20 years ago to be exact, The Alarm played their final show at Brixton Academy.
I had been living up here in Scotland for three years and so never got to see it (though I have seen a video of the show). Was mighty glad though when Mike Peters got the band up and running again (but with a different line-up of course)!
