Bummer Album: UB40 – Getting Over The Storm


Thirty-two years ago, UB40 released the ground-breaking Present Arms, a soundtrack to anti-Thatcherism. It stands its ground even today; the measure of a true classic. However, the band have a new album out don’t they? It’s called Getting Over The Storm and, only being able to write five new songs, they decided to do cover versions. What’s the perfect combination? Why, reggae and country music of course – no, no, no – Bummer Album of the Week.
