The Selecter

One of UK ska revival’s key bands of the late ’70s and early ’80s, The Selecter, is led by the iconic Pauline Black, alongside a talented band of musicians, and co-fronted by original member Arthur Gaps Hendrickson. The anarchic passion that fueled Selecter gigs during the 2-Tone era is still there, except the pair (Pauline & Gaps) is more driven than ever.

The Selecter originally began as a studio project, and besides being seen as one of the most important ska bands, they were also pioneering thanks to the fact that they were fore fronted by a woman. Black also famously never shied away from then-sensitive topics of sexism and racism. They were soon added to the 2-Tone Records roster and scaled the UK singles charts with singles “Three Minute Hero”, “On My Radio” and “Missing Words”.

The Selecter’s debut album “Too Much Pressure” was released early in 1980, and rose to number five on the UK album chart, eventually receiving a gold certificate. Besides the 2017 release of their album “Daylight”, the band recently won Best Roots Act at the 2018 Vive Le Rock Awards. In 2019, the band is celebrating its 40th anniversary and will share their amazing feat with EXIT Festival’s audiences!
