The Selecter are a 2 Tone ska revival band from Coventry, England formed in 1979. Their lyrics featured themes connected to politics. Reinforcing the songs of Neol Davies were the voice and rude girl style of Pauline Black and the rhythms of Desmond Brown on the Hammond organ. The band’s name is based on the term “selector”, which is a Jamaican word for disc jockey. The band were one of the most successful ska bands of the 2 Tone era, notching up several top forty singles in the British charts. The Selecter reformed in 1991 and vocalist Black continued to perform and release music under The Selecter name until 2006.
