• I Just Can't Stop It : My Life in the Beat - Ranking Roger

This is the story of one of the UK's biggest 2-Tone bands, The Beat, who at the height of their fame in the early 80's, had three top-selling UK albums and like the Specials, epitomized the 2-tone multi-racial approach to music and life in urban Britain. The story begins in 1979, when 16 year-old Birmingham school boy Roger - a punk fan - was invited to appear on stage at a local pub with the newly formed ska band, The Beat. Roger's energetic style and Jamaican-influenced vocals, paired with Dave Wakeling's angelic pop vocals, immediately distinguished the band from the other ska bands making waves, The Specials, Selecter and Madness.

Now back recording new albums, and playing sell-out international dates, The Beat - fronted by Ranking Roger - tell, for the first time, their extraordinary story with acclaimed music writer Daniel Rachel ('Walls Come Tumbling Down').
