W. Niederhut Posted November 17, 2020 Share Posted November 17, 2020 (edited) Great stuff, fellas. I have been a big fan of the English Beat since the early 80s, when I saw Rick Wakeling, Ranking Roger & Co. in concert. (I've even recorded my own home-studio covers of a few Beat songs, which are surprisingly simple to play.) David Andrews' Flying Lizards' cover of James Brown's Sex Machine had me rolling on the floor. (I had never heard of the Lizards.) But let's not forget about the original robotic "New Wave" video of that era, which I first saw on a giant screen at a club in Greenwich Village in (?) '80 or '81, before MTV existed -- Das Model, by Kraftwerk. I think the club was called Rock City. (There was a similar club at Kenmore Square in Boston at the time, called the Metro.)
