The English Beat: Lost Treasure of 2018

It's been 36 years since The English Beat released a new record so it was nice to see a new LP of fab ska tunes drop in 2018. Dave Wakeling decided it was time so he sent out a request from fans to fund the making of the album and guess what? We paid for it!!

The whole 13 track offering, Here We Go Love, is bloody mags. It draws one back to those halcyon days of the early 80's when rude boys and rude girls danced their asses off at late night parties. If there weren't so many great records last year, it might have made my Top 21. Regardless, it's still magnificent.

Here's the opening track which showcases how strong of a live band they still are. I think they've been touring non stop for the last 20+ years!!
