STEEL PULSE have been perfecting their original and distinctly high-energy style of reggae music for a quarter of a century. As the only British reggae group to win a Grammy Award (for Babylon the Bandit in 1985), their international success continues to inspire audiences of both new and long-dedicated fans. It has also earned them subsequent Grammy nominations for Victims, Rastafari Centennial, Rage & Fury and, most recently, for Living Legacy, in 2000.
Their music is an extension of their roots. Always rebels with a cause, the vanguard tends to be where they are. Spike Lee met the group at a fundraising function and soon selected ‘Can’t Stand The Heat,’ written by STEEL PULSE founder and lead vocalist David Hinds, for his film Do The Right Thing.
STEEL PULSE’s powerful performances have recently been hailed as "…an occasion to contemplate political art’s effectiveness…" by The New York Times.
