Ska sensations The Selecter play Komedia in Bath
The Selecter pioneered the ska revival movement alongside labelmates, The Specials and Madness, and were responsible for some of the scene's classic hits, including On My Radio, Three Minute Hero, Missing Words and Too Much Pressure.
The Selecter's iconic frontwoman Pauline Black is reverently referred to as the "Queen of Ska".
In 2010, Black reunited with the band's co-singer, the brilliantly charismatic Gaps Hendrickson known for his incisive toasting on the mic, to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their classic Too Much Pressure.
Since then, this refreshed and revitalised line-up have been the recipients of a wave of critical and popular acclaim for their brilliant 2011 album, Made In Britain.

Made In Britain successfully explored the multicultural landscape of today's Britain and beyond.
Mixing ska, pop and reggae in their inimitable style, it reflected the social and political issues confronting Britain's new multicultural society.
Just as they gave a voice to disaffected youth across the racial divide in Thatcher's recessionary Britain 30 years ago, The Selecter have returned to a 21st century British landscape with an unnerving number of parallels to those dark times.
The two-tone legacy continues because the idea of multiculturalism began when black and white youth, who had grown up in Britain decided to get together and make music that reflected their particular world.
Catch them at Bath's Komedia on Sunday where tickets cost £15.
Field Music, one of the 12 shortlisted acts for the 2012 Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize will perform at Komedia tomorrow.
Field Music (a.k.a. Sunderland siblings Peter and David Brewis) released their fourth album, Plumb, through Memphis Industries in February to much critical acclaim.
Plumb digs into the age-old dichotomy between what is reflective or nostalgic and the disorienting immediacy of the outside world.
With 15 tracks crammed into 35 minutes, it remodels the modular, fragmented style of the first two Field Music albums; only now shot through with the surreal abstractions of 20th century film music.
