SELECTER. Two-tone ska revival band from Coventry first formed in 1979. The group featured a racially diverse line-up and their lyrics featured themes connected to politics using the voice of rude girl lead singer Pauline Black. The band's name is based on the term "selector" which is a Jamaican word for disc jockey.The band were one of the more successful ska bands of the 2-Tone era with best known UK Top 30 hits in 1979-1980 that include ; Gangsters / On My Radio / Three Minute Hero and Missing Words. The group reformed in 1991 and vocalist Pauline Black continued to perform and release music under The Selecter name until 2006. Then confusion emerged over two competing lineups for the band in 2011 (between that featuring Davies and that featuring Black and Arthur 'Gaps' Hendrickson). In June 2011 Black applied for and won The Selecter trademark and the right to use the name herself.
