THE FLEECE, BRISTOL, 21st March

We moved from the O2 Academy to The Fleece in Bristol just two days later, Saturday 21st March. The Fleece is a popular venue and on this night hosted The Tuts, who supported none other than The Selecter. The Tuts are an all girl indie punk band from West London, again we were covering the event with photos for the website and a review for (Music Trespass­). The Tuts contributed to an enjoyable night of music, the photos can be seen here. (link).


The Selecter first formed in 1979 and have been performing ska and 2 Tone music for approaching three decades. They are one of the most iconic bands of the ska and 2 Tone movement and have produced many hits over the years, such as Missing Words and On My Radio. Fronted by Pauline Black and Arthur “Gaps” Hendrickson, they are more popular than ever and tour throughout the UK.

We at Icarus captured the best moments of the performance, using the back drop of strobe lighting to good effect. The compact stage at The Fleece provided an intimate setting for both The Selecter and The Tuts, and allowed for the photography that can be seen here.
