Biography

THIS PAGE IS SHARED BY THREE MUSICAL GROUPS NAMED “THE BEAT POETS” PLEASE BROWSE YOUR WAY THROUGH BOTH BANDS BACK CATALOGUES!

1. THE BEAT POETS 1986 - Present

Formed in 1986 in Glasgow, The Beat Poets released their first records on the legendary Scottish independent label 53rd & 3rd. Those records led to appearing on the BBC TV show FSD - also on the series were Del Amitri, Primal Scream, and the Primevals.

- For more than 20 years they have marched along the shining path of instrumental rock & roll, gigging with Dick Dale, when their guru finally came to Scotland, working as Alex Chilton’s band, when the Dion of the Memphis Mafia came to Glasgow looking for a band who knew Billy Boy Arnold and Otis Redding, and making every gig a party.

- Still too dumb to stop, they roll on.
