Marnie Andy Burden explained earlier on Facebook –

Just to give you a bit more info about this incarnation of Alternative, both Rodney Relax & Murphy (original line up) are involved. We have the blessing of the other original members (they’ll be at the gig!) and we’ve had a lot of help from them and Iain Influx with regards to getting lyrics etc. Other members of this line up were / are friends of the band from the 1980’s, we’re doing this with the best of intentions to give people a chance to hear these great songs live which are more relevant than ever in todays political climate. More importantly to us we’re having a lot of fun doing it and it’s got us back in touch with old mates. Thought Control have played a few gigs this year all benefits (Jimi Maguires Family / Shropshire MIND / The Bunker & a children’s music charity in Manchester) The band members haven’t took expenses. Seeing peoples smiling faces and singing along at these gigs makes it all worth while for us. We initially set the Thought Control project up to celebrate the first gig at The Bunker in Sunderland but after all the effort that went into rehearsing for it (over 18 months) when we got asked to do other gigs, well why not? Hopefully see some of you in Edinburgh.
