Dreadtown new born

They have raged on for forty years, cutting a swath across continents and lighting the fuse of revolutionary thought. From the pressure-cooker ghettos of England to the mighty gates of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, one band has forged an enduring legacy. This is their story.

Dreadtown tells the story of British reggae group Steel Pulse, who emerged from the racial turbulence of 1970s Britain to become one of the world's most loved and enduring reggae bands.
