I Walk The Earth

Before The Beta Band split up Steve Mason was working on solo material. No Style came out in 2000 on Alan McGee's Poptones label and set out his solo stall- shuffly drums, multi-tracked vocals, rising chord sequences and the extended, chanted outro part which stops and then kicks back in does the same thing for another minute or two. Looking back at Steve's albums from 2016's Meet The Humans, 2013's post-riots Monkey Minds In The Devil's Time, his Black Affair releases and King Biscuit Time records and the three Beta Band albums there's a real sense of continuity and progression, of refining his sound and style.
