The English Beat

The English Beat (aka: The Beat in the U.K.) released Special Beat Service in 2003. It was widely successful in the USA and less so in their Native U.K. The band had developed a Reggae beat and unusual time signature on these tracks which translated well with the dance set of the day. The LP could be considered a greatest hits release as it is chock full of some of the best Beat songs released. I Confess, Sole Salvation, and Save It For Later were among the singles from the album. The band broke up after Special Beat Service and band members formed General Public and Fine Young Cannibals after the break-up. This prophetic track is called End Of The Party.
