This double-sided shirt is for the reggae band UB40 for seventh album Rat in the Kitchen. The graphics on the shirt have the same colorful pop art quality as the album's cover. Released in 1986, the album contained two UK hits "Sing Our Own Song" and the title track which featured A&M Records co-founder Herb Alpert on the trumpet.
UB40 was formed in 1978 in Birmingham, England. Over the years they have been nominated four times for the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album and in 1984 they were also nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Group. After gaining success in the UK, the band extended their popularity to the United States with the release of their 1983 album Labour of Love, which consisted of various cover songs. Their cover of Neil Diamond's "Red Red Wine" managed to stay on the charts for over 100 weeks. Their songs were also used in movies such as their cover of "(I Can't Help) Falling in Love With You" which was featured in the Sharon Stone movie Silver and their cover of "Superstition" that was used in Vampire in Brooklyn starring Eddie Murphy.
