The Bluebeaters

Hungry Heart / The Model

Record Kicks

Released: 25th September 2015 | 2 track rock steady single

Record Kicks proudly presents 2 scorchers from The Bluebeaters on a super limited edition 45 vinyl. On the A side the new single taken from their latest LP Everybody Knows, a storming early ska cover up version of Bruce Springsteen's Hungry Heart. The Bluebeaters took the Boss's classic hit back to Studio One in 1965 and delivers you another irresistible hit! On the B side expect the unexpected, Kraftwerk's The Model has never sounded so cool thanks to the BB's Jamaican Ska treatment.

Active since 1994 with 4 studio albums for V2 and Universal Music and 2 gold records under the belt, The Bluebeaters during the last 20 years of their career have headlined festivals like Rototom Sun Splash and International Ska Fest in London. Amongst their fans, there are folks like David Rodigan, Gaz Mayall and the legendary late lamented Lloyd Knibb (The Skatalites).

An essential spin for Jamaican collectors and djs.
