The Selecter
The Selecter

Legendary 2-Tone act The Selecter headline the Roadmender on Sunday.

The band is out on a 16 date tour of the UK to support their new album Subculture which was released in June.

Led by the iconic singer, author and broadcaster Pauline Black, The Selecter will be playing a selection of tracks from Subculture – including recent single Walk The Walk as well all of their classics such as Three Minute Hero, Too Much Pressure and On My Radio.

The Selecter formed in Coventry in the late 1970s released the albums Too Much Pressure and Celebrate The Bullet in 1980 and 1981 respectively.

Despite disbanding in the early 1980s, they reformed in both 1991 and agian in 2010.

Since re-forming a half-­decade ago, the band have become increasingly aware that their championing of 2-Tone, Ska, Reggae & Soul is firmly rooted outside of today’s mainstream genres.

However, with more than 110,000 Facebook fans and tens of thousands more across other networks, the band’s following is worldwide and enduring.

They remain figureheads for skinheads, mods, punks, northern-soulers, rude boys and girls and the many other groups who define themselves at variance with the status quo.

Black’s recent series of shows on BBC 6Music were hugely well received and her book Black By Design continues to sell in droves worldwide.

During their career, The Selecter have headlined thousands of shows across the world and at festival including Glastonbury, Isle Of Wight Coachella.

Joining Black in The Selecter are Neil Pyzer, Will Crewdson and Arthur Hendrickson.

Support is by west London female pop punk trio The Tuts.

The Selector play the Northampton venue on Sunday, December 6.

Doors open at 7.30pm, tickets cost £17.50 before fees.
