The Selecters's second album, Celebrate the Bullet, was released in February 1981 as the follow-up to the successful 2 Tone debut album Too Much Pressure, along with the hit singles "On My Radio," "Three Minute Hero" and "Missing Words."
Switching labels to Chrysalis Records, the band returned to "On My Radio" producer Roger Lomas, moving into a more melodic slower pace, whilst keeping their lyrical commentary on racial and social issues. Original members Desmond Brown and Charley Anderson departed before the recording began, with Lomas and Norman Watt-Ray (Ian Dury) helping on bass before new members James Mackie and Adam Williams joined to complete the recording.
Unfortunately, the title of this album was misunderstood at the time of its release due to the recent murder of John Lennon and an assassination attempt on U.S. President Ronald Reagan, which meant radio stations didn't support the single or album, and the release was largely ignored.
This forgotten classic from the 2 Tone era is a timely reissue and will give time for a re-evaluation in the same way 2021's reissue of Too Much Pressure showed the band as relevant.
