ENGLISH BEAT / DAVE WAKELING

Across the Atlantic, the English Beat is simply called the Beat (much like the Charlatans UK are the Charlatans and the London Quireboys are the Quireboys). Even weirder — in Australia, the band is called the British Beat. But enough of all that. These guys have been leading the line for 2-tone ska since the ’70s, when they burst out of smoggy, industrial Birmingham. One smash hit courtesy of Smokey Robinson’s “Tears of a Clown,” and they were huge. They just re-released the classic “Mirror in the Bathroom” for Record Store Day so, if a revival were necessary, it’s on.
