Ska legends The Selecter will be swinging by Norwich next month in support of their latest record.

They’ll be at Epic Studios on Saturday, April 29, and they have another regional show booked in for the Cambridge Junction on Thursday, May 4.

The East Anglian dates will come just days after the release of Human Algebra, which will be their 16th studio album and will include their trademark social and political observations.

The Selecter began life in 1979 and are considered to be one of the founders of the two-tone ska movement.

The original band lasted only a couple of years, but there have been various incarnations since then. Today’s line-up includes frontwoman Pauline Black, co-vocalist Arthur “Gaps” Hendrickson and drummer Charley “Aitch” Bembridge, who were all founder members.
