Steel Pulse

Biography

Along with Aswad, Steel Pulse have been leaders in British Reggae, drawing inspiration from the music of Bob Marley and Burning Spear to mold their own Jamaican-inspired sound. They started their career opening for the Clash, the Sex Pistols and Generation X, inserting a bit of Punk edginess into their heavy sound. Tracks like "Ku Klux Klan" and "Earth Crisis" carried political messages stowed away on catchy, bass-heavy grooves that ultimately founded the Pop-Reggae genre. Lead singer David Hinds -- instantly recognizable for his massive, up-shooting palm tree of dreadlocks -- has taken the band through many musical realms during their extended career, but has consistently based their sound around traditional Roots influences, searing guitar solos and blazing horns. After delving a little too heavily into overproduced, synth-based music, Steel Pulse have returned to their original sound.
