The Paul Collins Beat - The Beat DD gives the Paul Collins Beat debut record a double eighth note - great power pop

Released 1979


This band might have garnered more attention if they did not end up competing for "The Beat" title with the band who ultimately came to be known as The English Beat. This band is sometimes referred to as "The Paul Collins Beat." Anyway, this is a really good pop record that should have had better visibility.

Collins got his start in a band called the Nerves, which also featured future Plimsoul Peter Case and Jack Lee (who wrote the future Blondie hit "Hanging on the Telephone").
