This CD packages up the debut Alarm EP featuring "The Stand" and "Marching On" with a bunch of demos, previously unreleased songs and live cuts. What is particularly interesting here is to see how the band sounded right at the start, in their full acoustic glory. Even in these formative months though, tracks such as "Unsafe Building" and the original "Sixty Eight Guns" possess a power and self assurance that hint at future glory.
