[01 MAR 99] THE BLACKROOM

blackroom-header2.gif (3816 bytes)

Hi and welcome to the blackroom. My name is Pauline Black, lead vocalist with The Selecter. The blackroom is a weekly diary of my travels around the thriving live music clubs of the Coventry and Warwickshire area.

In the Bands2C section, I will be reviewing local bands and interviewing those who catch my attention. Other areas of interest will be a regular spot entitled The Story So Far… - a series of interviews with past luminaries of the Coventry music scene. And if The Selecter is on tour, which happens regularly, then I’ll give you an inside view of life on the road in Behind The Scenes.

If you know of a band, or indeed, are in a band, or if you’ve heard of a new club that’s really happening in the area, and you think I should check it out, then e-mail me at pblack1@compuserve.com

Remember your feedback is vital!!

Watch for a forthcoming review of The Superheroes stunning gig at the Hand and Heart on Saturday 20 February. I shall be interviewing them for the blackroom before their gig at the Colin Campbell on Friday 26 February. Definitely the best band on the local scene.

Check out a future interview with fellow 2-toner, Charley Anderson, currently recording a new album in Sweden with The Skalatones. Also up for a review are Leicester based band Mirrorphase and local band Murph.

So, to kick off the blackroom and just generally introduce myself, I thought it would be a good idea to give my perspective on the beginnings of 2-tone in Coventry and a brief history of The Selector.
