Our Overview. 

One of the biggest bands of the 2-Tone movement The Beat are releasing their new 10 track album ‘Public Confidential’. The Beat are known the world over for a string of hit singles in the 80’s including "Mirror in the Bathroom", "Too Nice To Talk To", "Can't Get Used To Losing You", "Hands off She's Mine" and "Best Friend". 

Fronted by vocalist Ranking Roger, the band is very much as before but this time even more of a family affair with Roger’s daughter Saffren providing vocals as well as Beat stalwart Ranking Junior on toasting duties. Completing the line-up are Fuzz Townshend (drums), Chiko Hamilton (Sax), Andy Pearson (Bass), Andy Perriss (Gtr) and Bobby Bird (Gtr).

Expected to delight 2-tone fans, who endured a 30-year gap before ‘Bounce’ (2016) between albums, ‘Public Confidental’ continues to showcase the band at their joyful skanking best with 10 brand new songs. Produced by Mick Lister and Ranking Roger, ‘Public Confidential’ will be available digitally and on cd, black heavyweight vinyl, blue transparent vinyl and black/white half & half vinyl. 

Roger is also finishing his autobiography “I Just Can’t Stop It” (co-written with Daniel Rachel) which is being prepared for publication by Omnibus Press in June 2019.
