Steel Pulse and in particular frontman David Hinds have taken time out from touring the globe to put in a few hours in front of the camera and onto the silver screen as part of the cast in a new coming-of-age stock car racing movie called Rocksteady and starring Cedric Sanders in the lead role. David Hinds appears onscreen as Ras whilst the band members become the Black Star Liners for the duration of the motion picture. Clark Gayton is the movie's composer and had a stint with the band on trombone in 1992. This time around the eight band members that will be treading the boards are Juris Prosper, Keysha McTaggart, Selwyn Brown, Wayne Clarke, Sidney Mills, Donovan McKitty and Desdale Wilmot, who is better known to all as Amlak Tafari. Keep your eyes open for this film which kicks-off the Woodstock film festival tomorrow. Link: Rocksteady.
