Here is a family that suffered a huge loss with the mindless, senseless, barbaric murder of their beloved son Anthony, age 18. And yet they forgave his killers even before they were arrested and brought to trial. Such great, magnificent dignity and compassion in the face of such terrible adversity . Read more NOW

 "Simply The BEST - George Best was a genius in a period of time when the world was not ready for him. He became a catalyst against conforming to the ways of the establishment, the status quo.  Steel Pulse pays tribute to him, as he was a man who became part of our upbringing and the culture revolution of that time, that helped bands like us develop our ideals of today."  David Hinds and Selwyn Brown

"Greetings, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Steel Pulse band,crew & management for their hospitality in Birmingham.

 "Fantastic show at the DRUM... Many thanx.. Good Luck everyone, All the Best, Gary E

 Oct 17, 05

  "Just would like to say how much we enjoyed the blistering set at the Drum last night.
Having travelled up from London on saturday especially for this show, we were treated to a near 2 hours of classic Steel Pulse songs. It was great to hear Blessed is the Man live for the first time.
We also had a full version of the Ku Klux Klan and the classic Handsworth Revolution nearly brought the house down. David Hinds was in fine form and his energy levels never seems to diminish.
It was nice to see and speak to the great Steve Grizzly Nisbett and Selwyn Bumbo Brown.
Special thanks goes out to the brother Clifford Mooney Pusey for his blistering guitar solo during the interval, and for taking time out to speak to us outside the our hotel lift lobby last night after the show. You are a truly great guy. What more can I say apart from roll on thursday at London's Mean Fiddler. "   - Cedric + Terry -

 Oct 16, 05

"Hello, just wanted to ask a special favor.  I would love for you guys to come back and play in Jacksonville Florida again. The show at Freebird Cafe, home of Lynyrd Skynrd, was heaven sent. I know you have obligations elsewhere, but we are all getting older and prodigy's like yourself won't be around forever. You make hearts melt and souls rejoice. Big Ups and Peace!" - Andy Bernard - (Amen, Andy - that was the DRUM last night! Ron)
