  1. Thanks to your linked video, I just went to iTunes and bought their greatest hits album, which I’ve not listened to since college. Great tunes!

  2. Pete Townshend does a decent live cover of this if you ever get the chance to hear it. Also, if you like the Beat, they were linked via shared personnel to The Specials, General Public and Fine Young Cannibals. If what you like is the singer, though, then GP was his other vehicle.

  3. Ahhh,…. nice call John. Special Beat Service and W’happen are still two of my all-time favourite albums. The Beat, The Specials, Maddness and even Selecter were the top of UK Ska before anger set in.
