The Beta Band were truly a great band who will be sadly missed by their fans and counterparts industry wide. They gave us innovative new music and creative cleverness that left most other groups far behind.
After releasing 'The Three Eps' they shot to prominence, becoming front cover of the NME material and deservedly so. 'The Beta Band' album followed as their first album much to the grievance of the band who told people not to go and buy it, they felt it was not fit for release. 'Hot Shots II' followed. The lead single was to be 'Squares', but they were beaten to it by I Monster who released a single before 'Squares' containing the same sample. It was typical of their luck - The Beta's version was much better in the ears of most and had they released first, it could have propelled them to new and dizzier heights of chart/sales success for sure. The third album 'Heroes To Zeros' was another critical success and their biggest record to date with impressive videos for the two singles, but somehow it had all come too late in the day for the band and shortly after the release of second single 'Outside', the band called it a day, enough was enough.
'The Best Of The Beta Band' perfectly sums up what this band was all about and stands as a testament to the success and creative innovation of a band that will be loved for a long time to come. If they ever were Zero's, then it was just down to bad luck and timing - to everyone else though these four creative genii are forever Heroes anyone up for a reunion tour in ten years time?
