‘Walk The Walk’ is a beautifully stylised, fashion-led music video, styled by renowned celebrity stylists Sam Lambert & Shaka Maidoh from ArtComesFirst, and features a cast of famous names from the world of music and fashion, including, of course, The Selecter’s iconic front woman Pauline Black and ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson themselves.

Mike B, Owner of celebrity stylists BOGARD, who helped shape the image for icons such as Notorious BIG and Sean ‘Puffy’ Coombes;

Matteo Gioli, Milliner to the stars and MD of SuperDuperHats in Milan;

Sam Lambert & Shaka Maidoh, high-end fashion stylists & tailors known as ArtComesFirst and;

•Sinbad Phgura, feted fashion & travel photographer, and as a member of The Twilight Players has performed worldwide from 10 Downing Street to Glastonbury to Mumbai, and also appeared in videos by Madonna, U2, David Guetta, and Kylie.

‘Walk The Walk’ is homage to the individuals, the rudeboys & girls and all those who stand proud for what they believe.

Support on all Tour Dates comes from the fantastic all-girl Punk Band, The Tuts, who wowed Selecter fans up and down the country supporting them earlier this year.
