The English Beat: I Just Can't Stop It

Very pleased to note tonight's upcoming show at the Granada Theater, 3524 Greenville Avenue, Dallas, Texas: The English Beat. Last time I saw them or any of their successor bands (General Public comes to mind) was in the 1980s. This is exactly the kind of venue I like for seeing "medium" scale live shows -- with about a 1,400 person capacity, in a building that dates to just after the Second World War.  

Seems like yesterday, picking up a vinyl copy of I Just Can't Stop It (1980), back in Chapel Hill. I'm still digging it!  This one hit number three in the UK -- but only #142 in the USA.

Today's Rune: Wholeness.
