Birmingham Super group .. Steel Pulse is the most important reggae voice ever to emerge from the UK. Jimmy Cliff said it and so did Linton Kwesi Johnson whose controversial documentary Dread, Beat and Blood was banned before a general elction in the UK.
Fans of Steel Pluse include the late Bob Marley, Spike Lee and Sting.
Arguably, in their quest to fight injustices head on, Steel Pulse is the most important reggae band to ever emerge. They rose to fame in Birmingham in the 70's with Handsworth Revolution when British reggae acts didn't stand a chance in the UK or in Jamaica. They went on to get signed by Island records releasing Ku Klux Klan and donning the hooded outfits live on stage in Middle America. Their gigs inspired Roger Rankin to say it was surprising that they never got shot.
