Dave Wakeling and The English Beat have hit a new stride. With their first new album in 35 years and a US tour, it’s safe to say these new wave legends are back. Despite some personnel changes and a freshened up musical energy, the group has stayed true to the politically-charged attitude that landed them a spot on the 2 Tone Records roster decades ago.
Here We Go Love is out now. Their off-air set for our Concert Club includes “Love You Give,” “Ranking Full Stop,” “Mirror in the Bathroom,” and a couple of odes to good ole KUTX. Listen to their Studio 1A performance in the player below!
