Steel Pulse – The Artist
Steel Pulse is a roots reggae musical band from the Handsworth area of Birmingham, England, which has many Afro-Caribbean, Indian and other Asian migrants. They originally formed at Handsworth Wood Boys School – composed of David Hinds (lead vocals, guitar), Basil Gabbidon (lead guitar, vocals), and Ronald McQueen (bass); along with Basil’s brother Colin briefly on drums and Michael Riley (vocals, percussion). Steel Pulse were the first non-Jamaican act to win the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album.
Ku Klux Klan – The Song
‘Ku Klux Klan’ is a 1978 single written by David Hinds and performed by the UK roots reggae band Steel Pulse. It was their first release with Island records and a tilt at the evils of racism, and one often accompanied by a visual parody of the sect on stage.
Ku Klux Klan – The Shape
Modelled into the sinister silhouette of a clothed and hooded member of the Ku Klux Klan. The Ku Klux Klan, commonly called the KKK or the Klan, is an American white supremacist hate group, whose primary target is African Americans. The Klan has existed in three distinct eras at different points in time during the history of the United States. All three movements have called for the “purification” of American society and all are considered “right-wing extremist” organisations. In each era, membership was secret and estimates of the total were highly exaggerated by both friends and enemies.
