harsh political climate of the early Eighties, but their social concerns seem no less relevant today. The new arrangements hark back to the past, too: after all, Signing Offwas recorded on a simple, four-track tape machine in the tiny studio of producer Bob Lamb in 1980.Another original to be given a fresh sheen is 1986’s Rat In Me Kitchen, with Astro again providing talk-over vocals. ‘That song was based on a real incident,’ recalls Ali. ‘Astro came over to my house in Balsall Heath to talk about lyrics, but I didn’t want to talk about the band, as I had a rat hiding behind my washing machine! So Astro wrote the song on the back of that incident. Some people thought it was about the government of Margaret Thatcher, but it had nothing to do with politics.’Most of the lead singing onUnpluggedis handled by Ali, and he is in fine fettle throughout. His voice, which Astro describes as ‘like a fine wine’, is instantly recognisable as the one that underpinned the Labour Of Loveseries and many other UB40 landmarks. As Mickey says: ‘Any song Ali sings could be a UB40 tune, which shows how important he was to the band. His genius, both now and back in the day, is the way he works a set of lyrics into a great melody.’Since reuniting three years ago, Ali, Mickey and Astro have developed into a formidable touring outfit. Their world tours have included visits to North and South America, Nigeria, South Africa, Dubai and Papua New Guinea. 2016 saw them return to the States, play Australia and visit the vineyards of New Zealand for a Red Red Winery tour. They also made an emotional return to the UK in April, when they perform songs from the first two Labour Of Lovealbums on an arena tour that included shows at London’sO2 Arena, the Brighton Centre and the Barclaycard Arena in their native Birmingham.‘We’ve had an outstanding two years on the road,’ says Ali. ‘In America, we’re playing huge venues that we last visited twenty years ago, and I can’t wait to play arenas in the UK again. For me, it’s all about promoting reggae. At the end of the day, fans don’t care about what goes on behind the scenes. They only care about the music, and that’s what we’re giving them. We’re having a great time and we’re doing it in style.
