For English Beat, Dance Music is the Medium for Tolerance
Geoffrey Himes, Baltimore Sun, 20 November 1982
ANDY COX, a young British lad with thick, wavy hair, plays a choppy guitar riff that's part slam-bang punk and part chinka-chinka reggae. Dave Wakeling, a tall, intense figure with short, sandy hair, shouts, "There's a new dance, the Tolerance, and it just might be your Sole Salvation!" Ranking Roger, a 21-year-old dark-skinned Britisher, adds the soulful harmony: "Sole salvation!" Saxa, a 51-year-old Jamaican, adds a big, grainy saxophone cry in affirmation.
