The line-up of The Selecter was at first just Neol Davies, John Bradbury (who later became a member of The Specials) and trombonist Barry Jones. The band name was also the title of their debut instrumental single, released as the b-side of the first 2 Tone Records single, “Gangsters vs.The Selecter”, released in July 1979. The track was originally written as a possible theme tune to an ITV series. Pauline Black joined in August 1979, and the band released the singles “On My Radio”, “Three Minute Hero” and “Missing Words”. The Selecter’s debut album,Too Much Pressure, was recorded at the end of 1979 and beginning of the new year, and was released in February 1980 by 2 Tone Records and Chrysalis Records. Charley Anderson and Desmond Brown then left The Selecter later that year to form The People. Their replacements were James Mackie and Adam Williams. Their second album, Celebrate the Bullet was issued in February 1981, but the following year the band disbanded. The Selecter were featured in the 2 Tone film documentary and on the live compilation album, Dance Craze.
