New Selecter (Pauline & Gaps) Singles, Video, and Album!

The Pauline Black and Gaps Hendrickson version of The Selecter is back in full effect and sounding mighty, mighty sweet! Their brand new anti-fascist single "Big in the Body - Small in the Mind" (a preview video is below) will be released on May 30, 2011, followed by the wonderfully titled "Back To Black" track on July 30. For vinyl freaks like me, there will be a limited edition 7" double-A sided vinyl single issued with both tracks that will be available beginning July 23, 2011.

All of this, of course, is leading up to a new 10-track Selecter album titled Made In Britain, which "explores the multicultural landscape of today's Britain and beyond." Made in Britain will hit the shops on September 1, 2011 via download and limited edition 12" vinyl. We can't wait to hear it (and we're hoping that a US tour--or at least a NYC gig--is in the works)!

If they do tour America, I hope Ms. Black will voice her appreciation for American ska fans and bands, instead of trashing them, and trashing America, as she has done in the past.

When has she trashed American ska fans?
