Payin' Dues: The Beatpack
A new line-up, but still the same savage R&B sound we know and love
With touchstones The Pretty Things, Downliners Sect, Kinks et al, The Beatpack formed in Rye, East Sussex in 1987, issued their sole album, 1991’s Could You Walk On Water, then split in 1992. Now re-formed, they have released two 45s, I’m Walkin’ and Where The Water Runs Deep with are configured line-up. “We wail harmonicas, bruise maracas, wreak havoc, squall feedback, spill blood, break hearts, have a blast,” says singer Hugh Dellar.
