Beats from a Single Drum features 10 remastered songs from the 1986 album including “Calling,” “Michael O’Reilly,” and “Suddenly,” with the latter track featured as the wedding song for Scott (Jason Donovan) and Charlene (Kylie Minogue) on Neighbours. “Suddenly” was also featured in a wedding scene for the hit UK show Gavin and Stacey.This era was defining for Rose Tattoo with a changed line up, new members in the fold, and Beats from a Single Drum released for the first time to great eagerness from fans and critics alike. The main contributing members of this album were Angry Anderson (vocals), Tim Gaze (guitar), Andy Cichon (keyboard/backing vocals), and Scott Johnston (drums/backing vocals). This pivotal time in Tatts history cemented the band as an established name and a force within the Australian music landscape. This is not the first Rose Tattoo release Golden Robot has been involved with, previously releasing Tatts: Live in Brunswick (2017), Blood Brothers (2018) and Scarred for Live 1980-1982 (2018).
