March 5, 2013 SteelPulse.com relaunched to help fans learn more about us, the music, and our focus on love and justice.
In 1978, race relations in Britain were in crisis. The National Front was gathering power and immigrants lived in fear of violence.
But that year also saw the birth of a campaign - Rock Against Racism (RAR) - aimed at halting the tide of hatred with music - a grassroots movement culminating in a march across London and an open-air concert in the East End. The campaign involved groups like TheClash, Steel Pulse, Buzzcocks, X-Ray Spex, The Ruts, and others, staging concerts with an anti-racist theme, in order to discourage young people from embracing racist views.
Our sincere condolences to Steel Pulse family member and bassist Amlak Tafari whose father Aaron Leo Brown passed away and was laid to rest on July 7th, 2013.
As Amlak says “Mi Love Mi Daddy and Mi Daddy Love Me; Not Gone, Never Forgotten.”
Peace, Love, Guidance and more Strength…
Amlak, knowing you as we do, we know this was probably the worst day ever of your life. We are totally aware of how much your father meant to you, and you to him. Please keep strong and we will continue to hold up the fort until you return.
