Get back to the basics of peace + hope with this revolutionary band
The Beat were major players in the ska and 2-tone movement that spread through the charts in the early '80s. A band open to musical changes, they incorporated punk, pop, soul, and reggae into their sound. They still stay close to their roots. That distinctive drumming style, the fusion vocals, and weighty brass section makes the music seem as politically palpable as it ever did. Standing only. Over 18s only. Standing only. Over 18s only.
"...one of British pop's most loveable and ebullient [bands]."
