About Beat, The (2)

2 Tone Ska revival group (with also some punk, new wave, soul, pop and reggae influences) formed in 1978 in Birmingham, UK in the wake of punk by guitarist/vocalist Dave Wakeling with [a22392] (bass) and Andy Cox (guitar) along with rapper/toaster Ranking Roger (Roger Charlery), drummer Everett Morton and veteran Jamaican saxophonist Saxa ([a1511592]). As there was an eponymous US group emerging at the time they were forced to use the names The English Beat or The British Beat on their American releases.

The band enjoyed immediate chart success and established their own record label [l27705]. After the split in 1983, Steele and Cox went on to form Fine Young Cannibals and later 2 Men A Drum Machine And A Trumpet while Wakeling, Ranking Roger and Saxa formed General Public. Saxa and Everett Morton also formed [a375192], with some guest appearances by Ranking Roger who also joined Specials, The's members in Special Beat.

Nowadays, 2 different versions of the band tour frequently: "The English Beat starring Dave Wakeling" (based in California) and "The Beat with Ranking Roger" (that features Roger's son [a750519]).
