The Beat

Description

Legendary 2-Tone Punk Ska Reggae Group led by vocalist Dave Wakeling celebrate their 40th Anniversary. The Beat formed in 1979 and released their debut single, an infectious cover of the Smokey Robinson classic ‘Tears of A Clown’ on 2-Tone Records which went straight into the UK national charts at #6. Along with their contemporaries The Specials, Madness and The Selecter, The Beat became an overnight sensation.
