Album Notes
The Selecter was once described as “conspiring to make dancing the only way to walk”. 31 years later, those words still hold true.

In late 2010 the Selecter returned to the music scene with a plan. Uniting the original singing duo of Pauline Black & Arthur ‘Gaps” Hendrickson with a sleek, tight band augmented by a horn section at Bloomsbury Ballroom on Nov 13th, led to instant offers of a storming slew of shows early this year. Energized by the enthusiastic audience response, they decided to record a brand new 10-track album “Made In Britain” , produced by Neil Pyzer- and due for release on Sept 1st 2011.

“Big In The Body- Small In The Mind” is the first single taken from the album. It is a slice of ‘The Selecter’ doing what they do best ; mixing a ska/rocksteady beat with a pop sensibility, coupled with some acute social observations on the state of the world right now. An homage to Woody Guthrie and a rallying call to all those fans who still feel that 2-Tone bands should be musically confronting the ugly face of racism, represented worldwide by odious organizations like EDL,BNP, KKK, Forza Nuova, Tea Party etc. The Selecter is proud to embrace the idea of multiculturalism. Many of the organizations just mentioned and seemingly the British ‘ConDem’ Government are intent on stamping it out. We believe multiculturalism is worth fighting for – and not only that, in the words of the song - all you fascists bound to lose!
