One of the U.K.’s most legendary reggae bands, Steel Pulse was formed in the
tough Handsworth neighborhood of Birmingham in 1975 by a group of friends from
struggling West Indian immigrant families. Chief among them was David Hinds,
Steel Pulse’s lead singer, guitarist, and principal songwriter. Building on a
base of roots reggae, they mixed Latin, jazz, and R&B influences in with the
Rasta beats—as well as impassioned messages of social justice and political
Steel Pulse’s first studio album for Elektra, 1982’s TRUE DEMOCRACY was also
their breakthrough to U.S. audiences — it impacted both Billboard’s pop and R&B
charts. As potent ideologically as musically, it’s one of their best, and on
Rhino vinyl, it sound better than ever.
