Fronted by Dave Wakeling, former songwriter and lead singer with The Beat, The English Beat will tour the UK for the first time, this Spring. Regarded as one of the great 2-Tone era bands, The Beat disbanded in 1983, going their own ways to pursue other projects. The English Beat will play an extensive run of UK dates in March 2014 including shows at O2 Academy venues in Liverpool, Glasgow, London, Oxford, Bristol and Dave’s hometown and the birthplace of many Beat lyrics and classics, Birmingham. Dave Wakeling is also the US ambassador for Specialized, a charity project set up to help raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust. Last year Specialized released an album of 28 Beat covers for Teenage Cancer Trust. Find out more at englishbeat.

The Beat (known in the United States and Canada as the English Beat and in Australia as the British Beat, are a band founded in Birmingham, England, in 1978. Its music fuses Latin, ska, pop, soul, reggae and punk rock. The Beat, consisting of Dave Wakeling (vocals, guitar), Ranking Roger (vocals), Andy Cox (guitar), David Steele (bass), Everett Morton (drums), and Saxa .

To listen to The English Beat is to marvel at how the Thatcher regime’s politics of racial polarization could inspire such an integrated musical polyglot. Forming in Birmingham in the late '70s, The Beat fused ska and every worthwhile strain of pop culture. Roger Charlery, the Englishman of West Indian descent who died on Tuesday (Mar. 26) of lung cancer and brain tumors, gave the Beat a pathos that matched the shimmering fluidity of drummer Everett Morton and bassist David Steele. Although Wakeling takes the lead, Roger’s Caribbean-inflected echoes of the title are punctuation, hard periods for terse declarative phrases. The ghostly harmonies in which Roger specialized complemented the melancholy manipulation of space around the cover of Doc Pomus’ Can’t Get Used to Losing You. In his harmonies Roger played the romantic, extending the monosyllable of the last word just enough.

With The Beat, Wakeling wrote and sang on classic hits such as “Mirror in the Bathroom” and “Save It for Later”. After The Beat dissolved in 1983, Wakeling and Beat bandmate Ranking Roger went on to form General Public, “the Humble Pie of post-punk,” completing the lineup with members of Dexys Midnight Runners, The Specials, and The Clash. General Public’s “Tenderness” would go on to become the band’s biggest hit and appear in a number of films, a couple of which involved film director and producer John Hughes. Over the course of two days, the two spoke of the new collection, a possible General Public compilation in the near future, the early days of The Beat, and why he was into ska and not punk. Other topics include Wakeling’s contributions to Hughes’ films, including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and She’s Having a Baby, and recording an album using nothing but solar power.

The English Beat’s original lineup broke up in 1983 - Wakeling and Ranking Roger went on to form General Public ( Tenderness, Taking the Day Off ), while Andy Cox and David Steele co-founded Fine Young Cannibals ( She Drives Me Crazy, Good Thing ) - though Wakeling, who for nearly the last 25 years has lived in California, keeps the old moniker alive on. the road. Like much of the music he helped create three decades ago, he remains as incisive and unflinching as ever. The music of the English Beat certainly had a political context to it. Do you think there is still a place for that in music today where it can touch a nerve in the - no pun intended - general public? I know people are terrified over it because they think it might ruin their careers. Somebody’s mum would go into hospital with cancer on a Monday and she was dead by the Wednesday.
