here to listen to 'String Theory Album'
Welcome to the Official Website of legendary 2-tone band
are a surprise hit @ Coachella Festival 2013 USA
The Selecter, as my colleague Kate McGinty
pointed out during weekend 1, is a band
with some history. Singer Pauline Black - the woman Gwen Stefani
cites as her prime influence - is 59.
But they fit right in at Coachella. Fans - most
of whom never heard the band before, let alone Two Tone - loved them.
And it showed in the best way Coachella fans know how: a mosh pit.
A little at odds with peppy ska, but it's the thought that counts.
The band ripped through a set that included hits like 'On My Radio' &
'Too Much Pressure', but also indulged in some ska classics: 'Train To
Skaville' & 'Carry Go Bring Come'.
All in all a fabulous show. - Posted by

Mojo Magazine May 2013: 'String
Theory' is a solid follow up to 2011's 'Made In Britain'. 3***
Vive Le Rock Magazine Feb 2013: Black & Hendrickson never afraid to deal with the big issues, whilst
musically The Selecter sound as relevant as they did in their heyday.
'String Theory' demonstrates their ability and desire to write
contemporary songs which rival their impressive back catalogue. 8/10
Mojo Magazine Sept 2011: "Pauline Black with a new Selecter band & toaster Gaps Hendrickson have shifted up a gear to
provide an album that would sit comfortably next to The Selecter's 1980 debut "Too Much Pressure"..... but it's when Black steps out of her comfort zone as with her reggae reading of Amy Winehouse's 'Back To
Black' that she moves forward, capturing the singer at her vocal best' 3***
Rolling Stone Magazine: "Hands down, Pauline Black possessed the best voice that ever graced a 2-Tone release. Blessed with a
bewitching soprano and dramatic panache, Black's voice reached plateaus that made every other musical detail sound like part of a backdrop painted just to set the stage for her entrance"
