They were never going to be as cool as THE BEAT (or THE ENGLISH BEAT as they were known here in the US) But General Public still had a little bit of that 2-tone reggae beat. Especially the final track from their debute LP ALL THE RAGE.
This is the special 12-inch mix of "GENERAL PUBLIC" 12-inch version (MP3). To me this kicks the ass of the LP version. From the opening organ riff to the dub breakdown in the middle. This is truely a lost classic that deserves another listen. It wasn't all Tenderness you know.
This blog is intended to shine a light on the obscure, never released on CD tracks from the great Post-Punk New Wave period. Most tracks are 12-inch remixes taken from long out-of-print 12-inch singles. Also posted is music I have created solo and in various bands I have belonged to. They will only be available for a limited time and if there is any way to find these things please buy them.If any artist wants the songs removed e-mail me at DEREKMADDOG@AOL.COM
