The Selecter is led by their iconic frontwoman
Pauline Black and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson. Pauline Black is one of very few women in the 2-Tone scene -
she is often referred to as the Queen of Ska. Not only a crucial figure in the music community, Black is also a published
author, gifted actress and a celebrated style icon.
The anarchic passion that fuelled Selecter gigs during the original 2-Tone era is still there, except the pair are more driven
than ever. Their confidence is sky-high and they’re also writing the best songs of their career, which is saying something
given the enduring popularity of hits like “Three Minute Hero,” “Missing Words,” “Too Much Pressure” and “On My Radio.”
The Selecter continue to release new music, charting new albums in the UK in the last couple of years, proving that 2-Tone
is still as relevant and important as it was 40 years ago. In October 2017 The Selecter released studio album Daylight – their
most urgent, politically engaged and purely uplifting record since the days of Too Much Pressure and Celebrate The Bullet.
