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.
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.
They 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 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'
career began as lead vocalist with all-woman 2-Tone band, The Bodysnatchers
, who toured with The Selecter
. The Bodysnatchers
first single was double A-side 'Let's Do Rocksteady'
with 'Ruder Than You'
