The Selecter record label

The Selecter record label

'Selecter' is Jamaican slang for a DJ. The haunting instrumental written in early 1979 by Neol Davies and John Bradbury, of The Specials, was a vital part of the original Coventry ska sound.

Two months after the record's release, and now fronted by vocalists Pauline Black and Arthur 'Gaps' Hendrickson, The Selecter were formed as a band. They went on to join label-mates The Specials and Madness on the first 2 Tone tour, and with songs including On My Radio and Three Minute Hero, The Selecter became one of the key musical outfits making up the 2 Tone movement. 

On 4th May '79 the 2 Tone record label was born, with The Special AKA's Gangsters and Selecter being the two tracks on the first single issued.

Our shirt celebrates the original record label design of The Selecter, anything but a B-side.
