    The Selecter

    Too Much Pressure (40th Anniversary Edition)

      The Selecter were one of the key bands of the ska revival in the late 70’s and one of the few racially and sexually integrated bands on the scene. Vocalist Pauline Black wrote about sexism, racism, and social issues. Their debut release was the AA side of The Specials single ‘Gangsters’ in the summer of 1979, which only consisted of Neol Davies and John Bradbury (of The Specials) before quickly forming a full band by the end of the year. Releasing their follow up single ‘On My Radio’ which reached No. 6 in the UK charts. Their debut album ‘Too Much Pressure’ was released in February 1980 and reached No. 5 in the UK charts. The album also included two further hit singles ‘Three Minute Hero’ and ‘Missing Words’.

      For bands with a history it can be tempting to take the easy route. Play the hits and a few covers. Keep it simple. Give the crowd what they’re expecting. Live comfortably in the past. Not so for The Selecter, the riotous skank machine who exploded out of Coventry in the game-changing, multi-cultural 2 Tone explosion of 1979. Led by their iconic frontwoman Pauline Black, alongside a hugely talented band of musicians, and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson, The Selecter are firing on all righteous cylinders in 2017 – and ready to release DAYLIGHT their most urgent, politically engaged and purely uplifting music since the days of ‘Too Much Pressure’ and ‘Celebrate The Bullet’. Their new studio album looks at the modern world with classic Selecter energy, wit and danceability and will be released on 06 October. The anarchic passion that fuelled the band’s gigs during the 2-Tone era is still there, except the pair (Pauline & Gaps) are more driven than ever. Their confidence is sky-high and they’re also arguably writing the best songs of their career.
