Who here loves the Beat as much as me? I Just Can't Stop It is of course a 10/10 masterpiece. Wha'ppen?'s quirky worldbeat and post-punk is almost as good, as is the new wavey Special Beat Service. New album Bounce is pretty cool too.

They have been getting some attention on BBC6 Music lately. And a member of another forum that I know recently met Dave Wakelin at a gig.

I didn't buy any of their albums but I remember their original run of singles. I liked most of them, 'Mirror In The Bathroom' probably being the best of all.

in the scheme of things they are an overlooked band.

You're right, Steve Lamacq had them on a special show last night that you might want to listen to - The Beat and The Selecter. Good fun:
