For a band that started life as an instrumental B-side to The Specials “Gangsters”, The Selecter went onto become one of the premier forces of the entire 2 Tone Ska explosion of the late 70’s / early 80’s.
Fronted by the ball of energy known as Pauline Black they chalked up four Top 40 singles including the seminal “On My Radio” and “Three Minute Hero” whilst the No.5 position for their debut LP “Too Much Pressure” was just reward for one of the modern Ska world’s greatest records.
They also scored a Top 30 smash with “Missing Words” which this author always felt was a great title for an album of Ska instrumentals!
