Cover Story – Dub Be Good To Me

Beats International was an electronic music band, formed in the late 1980s by Norman Cook (also known as Fatboy Slim), after his departure from The Housemartins.

A loose confederation of musicians, the line-up also included vocalists Lindy Layton, Lester Noel, rappers D.J. Baptiste (The crazy MC), MC Wildski and keyboardist Andy Boucher. Unusually, the band’s live line-up also incorporated a graffiti artist, who would paint designs on a backdrop while the musicians played.

Their first album, Let Them Eat Bingo spawned the UK number one single “Dub Be Good to Me”, a re-working of the S.O.S. Band’s hit “Just Be Good to Me”, based around a sample of the bassline from The Clash’s “Guns of Brixton” and featuring Layton on vocals.



The latest release in the BBC Radio 2 Saturday Sessions CD’s features a back to basic cover version by The Ting Tings
