Like many ska band of the time, The Beat were the product of high unemployment and massive societal tensions that marked the late seventies. They formed in 1978 and immediately rose in prominence thanks to the new wave of 2 Tone that hit Britain. Drawing on influences ranging from Jamaican dancehall rhythms and post punk their song writing style showed a maturity which lead to them writing timeless tunes.

The Beat released three amazing studio albums; I Just Can’t Stop It (1980), Wha’ppen? (1981) and Special Beat Service (1982). They toured with such amazing bands like The Pretenders and Talking Heads before becoming world famous in their own right.
