Win tickets to see the rude boys rock

The Beat are playing Liverpool next week. Their manager is convinced that we will bag, for personal use, the tickets he's given us. But we're not like that, see

Win tickets to see the rude boys rock

It might have been all about black and white clothes, but the whole of the 2-Tone ska craze that swept both the UK and United States was a bit of a golden time - and The Beat and The Specials were busy spearheading it with tunes like Mirror In The Bathroom and Gangsters.

Formed in Birmingham in 1978, The Beat's first hit single was the Top 10 hit Tears Of A Clown, a cover of the Smokey Robinson classic. They were a huge hit around the world until they disbanded at the height of their success, two of them going on to form Fine Young Cannibals.

But occasionally the spirit of Jah temps them all back together and now they are on a special UK tour which comes to Liverpool's Carling Academy next Saturday, March 31.

Their sound is deeper and darker these days, their manager Chris tells Liverpool Confidential and they are well worth catching.

They will be joined by Neville Staples, former singer of The Specials, those other true ska stars whose hit Ghost Town is still as haunting today.
