The Selecter, Matrix Hall

Last of my 2-tone stuff, The Selecter plus support playing at the Matrix (I think). Film is in bad nick but is a few ok shots in there. If any of you know can confirm the venue, or the date, or the name of the support band please drop a comment.

    Great pics again. Can’t help with the date or support but think Dude pic #22 is “Big” Frank; he’s also stage side on #7. Frank was always at a gig somewhere and introduced me to 2 tone back then. Sadly he passed away some years ago. Feel free to edit this as you see fit ; ) Again thanks for the memories.

    Sorry to hear about Frank – there’s also a shot of him in one the Urge gig sets – a great bloke.

    This is from a gig on 31st July 1979 at the City Centre Club, Coventry. Selecter played with the Specials and were supported by the aptly named Disorganisation. Assuming the write up in Alternative Sounds is correct that is!
