The aging UK band, The Alarm, have succeeded in pulling a prank on the record buying public. The middle-aged group, best known for their 1983 song “68 Guns”, recorded a new single under the fake band name of The Poppyfields. The single, titled “45RPM”, is currently number 28 on the British Charts. It was released with a video in which a younger group of men lip-sync to the song.
“We wanted the song to be judged on its merits and stir up the water a little bit,” singer Mike Peters is quoted as saying.
Obviously, the look is at least as important as the sound for many music buyers.Powered by Sidelines
