There may have been a thirty year gap between albums last time, but to the delight of 2-Tone fans everywhere, The Beat featuring Ranking Roger are back with ‘Public Confidential’ – complete with their trademark buoyant, celebratory, skanking beats as their eyes are fixed keenly on the mess of current politics.

The addition of Roger’s daughter Saffren and Roger Junior on toasting duties lend the album even more of a family affair, giving it a closeness and camaraderie that builds on the sheer joy that is evident from the band producing new music once more.
