Indeed, Hungry Beat, a collection of the groups formative releases, arrives with testimonials from Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie and Franz Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos, whose band recently coaxed the Fire Engines into the studio and back onto the stage. While Primal Scream and Franz Ferdinand are quite different from one another, one can see the respective appeal of the Fire Engines' sound. In the case of the former and fellow fans the Jesus and Mary Chain, its ragged chaos certainly resonated.

In 2007, Acute Records issued HUNGRY BEAT, a 16-track collection spread across the band's various releases, including its debut 1980 self-released single "Codex Communications. Offering a proto-dance punk sound pulled so tight you can practically bounce a quarter off it, the Fire Engines excelled at blending stutter-funk grooves with pre-C-86 jangle pop. A wonderful service to Britpop and post-punk fans alike, HUNGRY BEAT is absolutely essential.

It was released in 1981, through record label Pop Aural. The album was conceived by Bob Last, with the Fire Enginers "playing the role of willing accomplice" in the words of Innes Reekie of Louder Than War, who describe the album's concept as "music to go out to, to put you in the mood for 'action and fun'
