As founding members of UB40, Ali Campbell, Mickey Virtue and Astro helped to define reggae music for a generation. The iconic Birmingham reggae troupe topped the UK singles chart on several occasions and sold 70 million records as they took their smooth yet rootsy musical blend to all corners of the globe. Released in May 1981, the platinum-selling Present Arms spent 38 weeks in the UK album chart where it reached the No. 2 position. Present Arms is the second album to be recorded by UB40 and it spawned two Top 20 UK hits, "One In Ten" and "Don’t Let It Pass You By/Don’t Slow Down." Like their debut album, it concerned itself with many socially and politically charged themes, resonating with the politically uncertain times of the early 1980s when unemployment was rife and race riots afflicted many of the country’s inner cities. "One In Ten" was an undisguised attack on the Thatcher government of the period.
