Click on the link here for Audio Player: the beat – peel sessions – 5 nov. 1979
Since we’re heading into the home stretch for the weekend, and Friday is only minutes away, I thought I would increase the voltage a bit.
Tonight it’s The Beat, or The English Beat (depending on where you heard them first). Not one of the mellow and laid-back specimens of the 70s, The Beat were fast-paced, frantic and sweat inducing from the get-go.
Here’s what’s on the player:
John Peel Session – November 5, 1979
Ranking Full Stop
Mirror In The Bathroom
Not that you were planning on actually getting any sleep tonight or anything.
Besides, you have all weekend to sleep – and sleep’s overrated anyway.
Pump up the volume and dance.
