My Land Your Land

IRS wanted to release Rescue Me as a UK single in December 1987 while we were going to be on tour in the US and so we had to record some more tracks for b-sides. Also, IRS needed the titles of the songs for the artwork before we actually had the chance to record them. To speed things along, we sent the title of one of Dave Sharp’s songs My Land Your Land. (Mike Peters, Alarm 2000 collection sleeve notes).

We recorded the sessions at Ezee Studios while we prepared to go on tour. We had managed to put all the bad feelings that had arisen during the previous year behind us and were able to concentrate on being The Alarm again. We really enjoyed these sessions – just being left alone to create our music and play as a band without any outside pressures. On My Land Your Land Dave Sharp sang and he even le me play lead guitar.
