Steve & The Indestructible Beat = T.V. Smith + Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros

Steve Drewett & The Indestructible Beat were founded in the early ’90s. They came out of a void left by The Newtown Neurotics, who had then temporally split in 1988. Drewett took influence from the compilation album The Indestructible Beat of Soweto—released through The Earthworks Label in 1985—and started the new supergroup. This new band took its cues from African rhythms and the punk spirit,and recorded Disgraceland between 1990 and 1993 at The Square Studio. It was engineered by Nick Robbins, Richard Holgarth and Chris Fallon during different takes. Disgraceland was originally released in 1993 on cassette and has since been an obscurity, until now.
