A life remembered and an ongoing mission.

Many of you will know Tim Darvell who has been raising funds to help combat bowel cancer through his "Lives & Times" charity book which featured all members of the original Alarm and was published last year.

Sadly Jennifer, Tims mother, who had been diagnosed with the disease in 2012, passed away peacefully in her sleep on August the 29th with her family by her side.

Tim has sworn to continue his fight and honour his mothers memory and has already started gathering the people that will feature in the next volume of his book series. The first Alarm connection to be announced is the inclusion of Smiley...whether any more Alarm members past or present will be featured you will have to keep an eye out for announcements from Tim.

Information and his previous books can be found at

Our thoughts are with Tim and his family at this time.

Moments In Time

Ian Wilson is currently writing a book about his time in the music industry and the early years of The Alarm. Mike & Eddie have already agreed to help and Ian is hopeful for the participation of both Dave and Nigel, so fingers crossed!

BUT......he needs YOUR help too!

He would love to hear from you if you saw the band between 1981-1983 especially if you caught any of the U2 "War" tour gigs in the US in '83. So if you have a story to tell, pictures to share or anything of interest please get in touch with Ian at the following email address :
