This awesome double-sided concert t-shirt is from the English 2 Tone ska revival band, The Selecter. The shirt is from 1995 for the group's Hairspray Tour. Hairspray was the original title of their fourth album when it was released in the US, but in the United Kingdom it was released as Pucker!. The album followed their 1994 release, The Happy Album, and it helped them to establish their new direction of a more mild-mannered ska sound which incorporated elements of new wave and power pop as well.
The Selecter are considered one of the founding acts of the 2 Tone ska movement alongside the Specials. They were first active from 1979 until 1981. The band later reformed in 1991 with a line up consisting of Pauline Black, Neol Davies, and three members of the band Bad Manners Martin Stewart, Nicky Welsh, and Perry Melius. This new iteration of the group continued to change over time, but they still released several albums, toured the world, and also toured alongside No Doubt.
