The Selecter is led by their iconic frontwoman Pauline Black and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson. The anarchic passion that fuelled Selecter gigs during the 2 Tone era is still there, except the pair (Pauline & Gaps) 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. They released new studio album Daylight in October 2017 – with their most urgent, politically engaged and purely uplifting music since the days of Too Much Pressure and Celebrate The Bullet. The Selecter toured in the USA in Summer 2017 with Rancid and Dropkick Murphys and Pauline Black recently toured in Latin America as special guest with Damon Albarn’s Gorillaz.
