The Beta BandBecause
Released: 14th September 2018
Arguably one of the most acclaimed and loved bands of the past 20 years, by
both fans and their musical peers alike, The Beta Band formed in St. Andrews,
Scotland, in 1996.
Innovative and singular, their unique musical and aesthetic approach to
everything they did set them far apart from their musical contemporaries.
Together for a relatively short period of time, the three albums and three EPs
they released between 1996 and 2004 would nonetheless help define them as
one of the most exciting and cherished bands of their generation.
After acquiring the Beta Band’s catalogue last year, Because Music will reissue their releases, starting on September 14th with a double CD Best-Of compiling all their best hits and a live show recorded at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire (London) in 2004.
