Topic: The Beat and Selecter, Wrexham

Went along last night, mainly to see a mate who was over from Ireland for the gig. Venue is the university. In the foyer, Pauline Black is working the merchandise stall , happy to chat and have pictures taken even if you weren’t buying.
Lots of parka , dm’s and Fred Perry , bopping all night.
The Beat were in first , which is rankin Roger , his son , rankin junior and a good set of musicians. Played the mix of classics and new stuff . They were really good, Roger was in fine form.
Selecter were good , but i enjoyed the beat more .
Nice finale all on stage together.
One of them nights I wasn’t fussed on going, turned out very enjoyable.
Great gig for £25 .

To stand aside is to take sides.
