Global A Go-Go presents:

Living legends of reggae music Steel Pulse play the National in Richmond on Friday September 16. Founded in Birmingham, England, they were one of the first British reggae bands to break out in the late 1970s, with a political message that naturally allied them with punk and new wave acts like the Clash, the Police and XTC, among other bands they’ve shared bills with.

Recordings like Handsworth Revolution and True Democracy are in the reggae pantheon, and ongoing touring (which never stopped even when they didn’t have a new album) and their first new release in 15 years, 2019’s Mass Manipulation, shows they still have it. You’ll hear two Steel Pulse tracks that bookend their career on Global A Go-Go this week, and I’ll give away a pair of tickets for the National show as well.

Also this week (Sunday September 11, 1:00-3:00 PM on WRIR, for two weeks afterwards on the wrir.org archive player, check your local listings for airing on other radio stations, and any old time at my podcast site): Noori & His Dorpa Band stretch out, Vieux & Khru channel Ali Farka Toure, two generations of Malian songbirds, Andean-Amazonian futurism from Bolivia by Timpana, and champeta classics from the 70s and 80s.
