Steel Pulse - Introspective

Steel Pulse first came together at school where the original members decided to form a band. The band was originally from in Handsworth Birmingham UK in 1975 and quickly secured a one off singles deal with Anchor Records although the release wasn't really representative of the bands future sound or direction being more a pop song and whilst the band has explored a number of different styles over the years they are perhaps Britain's Premier reggae band.


The band attracted attention through their extensive gig schedule, which became even busier when punk hit its stride in 1977. The band also performed at many Rock Against Racism gigs during this period.


Signing to Island Records in 1978 they released their debut album Handsworth Revolution that also featured the hit single Ku Klux Klan, which has stayed in the bands live set to this day.


As stated initially Steel Pulse started out playing concerts with punk bands as part of the Rock Against Racism movement, which was popular in the late seventies however subsequent releases and touring took the band further afield than the UK and particularly to America where the band were even nominated for a Grammy award.


Steel Pulse have released a number of albums over the years the key ones being Handsworth Revolution, Earth Crisis and the Grammy award winning Babylon The Bandit. The band was also invited to play at Bill Clinton's presidential inauguration in 1993.


Introspective takes you through the history and also points you towards the future of Steel Pulse by means of an in depth interview and also archive and current footage of the band much of which is previously unseen. As a primer for the music of this hugely successful and groundbreaking band Introspective would be a fine place to start.
