|Description:||F-Beat Records was one of the record labels set up by Jake Riviera in late 1979/early 1980, at the same time as he started Demon Records. The label's first release, I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down by Elvis Costello & The Attractions, reached number 4 in the UK Charts, the highest singles chart position the label attained.
Costello notched up another fifteen hits for F-Beat before leaving for Warner Bros. Records.
F-Beat's roster also included Nick Lowe, Carlene Carter, The Blasters, Blanket of Secrecy and Clive Langer and the Boxes.
The original F-Beat label was closed down in 1986, but it was briefly reactivated in the early 1990s with a new roster including Blab Happy, Nicola Hitchcock and The Gutter Brothers|
