In other Selecter news, they headlined Billy Bragg’s Leftfield Stage @ Glastonbury, toured Australia in March, and Pauline and Gaps have done a slew of shows in the UK with Jools Holland’s R & B Orchestra (and will be doing more with them in the fall). They urge everyone to "stay vigilant, resist all forms of racism and sexism if you see or hear it and enjoy ska/2-Tone music wherever you can find it."
