The Alarm
Two of the U.K.’s many notable new wave bands, the Alarm and Jay Aston’s Gene Loves Jezebel, make a visit to the Social this week. The Alarm, a Welsh band that never quite made it to the top of the charts but nevertheless has a strong following, has a new album, Sigma, out on their own Twenty First Century Recording Co. label. Meanwhile, Jay Aston’s Gene Loves Jezebel – a qualified moniker resulting from Aston’s decades-long feud with his twin brother, Michael – haven’t put out anything new since 2017’s Dance Underwater, but are still able to tour on the strength of their back catalog. Both bands were a little more rock-oriented than some of their new-wave peers, creating a sound that has proven to push their sell-by date back indefinitely.
