U2? Never heard of the blokes…

During my misspent youth, most of the Ouija Board Kid’s days were spent in front of the ol’ boob tube; its cathode rays bathing me in soft, blue light. And what channel held my interest the most? Why, Mtv of course! While I whiled away the days during those burgeoning years of the art form known as the “music video”, one band that caught my attention was The Alarm; whose video The Stand was on heavy rotation. I loved their catchy tune and their rock/punk fusion style…oh, and the fact that the song was based on one of the greatest Stephen King novels of all time didn’t hurt either!
