Made In Britain Tour: The Selecter
Celebrating the release of their critically acclaimed 2011 album, Made In Britain, seminal 2-tone band The Selecter have announced an extensive UK tour.
Made In Britain explores the multicultural landscape of today's Britain and beyond. Mixing ska, pop and reggae in their inimitable style, it reflects the social and political issues confronting Britain's new multicultural society in 2011. Just as they gave a voice to disaffected youth across the racial divide in Thatcher's recessionary Britain thirty years ago, The Selecter have returned to a 21st Century British landscape with an unnerving number of parallels to those dark times.
Throughout March 2012, this most vital and visceral of British bands will bring their infectious musical message of multiculturalism and hope to towns and cities up and down the country.
Formed in Coventry in 1979 The Selecter spearheaded the 2-tone movement along with The Specials and Madness. Fronted by Pauline Black, they first hit the airwaves with 'On My Radio', followed by countless other hit singles. Mixing punk, ska and reggae, their debut album 'Too Much Pressure' successfully reflected the social and political issues of the early Thatcher years in Britain and gave a voice to disaffected youth across the racial divide.
The band split at the height of their popularity in 1981 but are now reformed and touring again with original lead singers Pauline Black and Arthur 'Gaps' Hendrickson.
