Going down under
The boys from Steel Pulse go 'down under' later this month
For the first time in 16 years Steel Pulse will be performing 'down under' when they head for a handful of shows in Australia and 1 show in New Zealand later this month. I've suggested to the band that they take the opportunity to stop over here in Cambodia en route but somehow I can't see it happening. Instead, those lucky Aussies will be hearing the world's best reggae outfit doing their thing in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, though they open up in Rotorua in NZ on 23 January. All the gigs are part of the Raggamuffin Festival Tour that will also include Lauryn Hill, Shaggy, Wyclef Jean, Julian Marley and Sly & Robbie in the program. Maybe the band will take pity on me and stop over on the way home. For all you nostalgia fans, below is a YouTube video of the band performing Ku Klux Klan in London's Rainbow Theatre in 1980. Sweet.
