The Selecter are a 2 Tone ska revival band from Coventry, England, formed in mid-1979.

The Selecter featured a diverse line-up, both in terms of race and gender, initially consisting of Arthur 'Gaps' Hendrickson and Pauline Black on lead vocals, Neol Davies and Compton Amanor on guitar, Desmond Brown on Hammond organ, Charley 'H' Bembridge on drums, and Charley Anderson on bass. 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. Having co-released the first 2 Tone Ska single with The Specials, they are considered one of the founding acts of the movement. Though highly influential, the original lineup only remained together for a year, and even with replacement players the band only continued until breaking up in 1981.

The new band released the singles "On My Radio", "Three Minute Hero" and "Missing Words", written by Neol Davies.

This single reached #10 in the Dutch Top 40 in February 1980 and #8 in the UK Top 100.

This is a recording made by TROS TV's TROS TOP 50 on 20 December 1979
