AOR is a band formed by The Alarm lead guitarist Dave Sharp in early 2008 to perform The Alarm's US setlist together with newly written material.

The current lineup consists of:

  • Dave Sharp, lead guitar
  • Wayne Parry, vocals
  • Tom Szakaly, Hammond
  • Dave Black, bass guitar
  • Si Smith, drums

In the autumn of 2008, Sharp was approached by Mike Peters, Alarm vocalist, about re-recording some of the classic Alarm tracks with the original lineup, including Eddie MacDonald and Nigel Twist.

Towards the end of 2008, AOR started work on an album due for release in 2009 - including a cover of Joe Cocker's classic 1969 Woodstock version of "With a Little Help from my Friends".
