Dave Wakeling of the English Beat invites me onto the tour bus before a show at Brooklyn Bowl. With songs in films like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Kingpin, and Clueless, Wakeling has seen his fanbase continue to grow long after the breakups of the Beat and General Public. Now those fans are even able to sing on For Crying Out Loud, the first English Beat album in over 30 years. Dave shares the stories behind a few of the new tunes and tries his hand at standup comedy.
