March 5, 2013 SteelPulse.com relaunched to help fans learn more about us, the music, and our focus on love and justice.
In 1978, race relations in Britain were in crisis. The National Front was gathering power and immigrants lived in fear of violence.
But that year also saw the birth of a campaign - Rock Against Racism (RAR) - aimed at halting the tide of hatred with music - a grassroots movement culminating in a march across London and an open-air concert in the East End. The campaign involved groups like TheClash, Steel Pulse, Buzzcocks, X-Ray Spex, The Ruts, and others, staging concerts with an anti-racist theme, in order to discourage young people from embracing racist views.
We wish for you to know, Steel Pulse has severed its’ business relationship with “Dreadtown” director Yoni Gal and Driftwood Pictures for breach of contract.
Unfortunately, Mr. Gal and Driftwood Pictures failed to complete the production of the Dreadtown film. Throughout the course of 2016 and early 2017, Mr. Gal omitted to cure or remedy all concerns Steel Pulse repeatedly expressed regarding the status and completion of our film.
It is also important to note, Mr. Gal extensively utilized Steel Pulses’ good name, industry standing, and associated trademarks while serving as “principal and agent” in the Indiegogo funding campaign. Mr. Gal and Driftwood Pictures commenced this funding campaign in November of 2015. According to Mr. Gal, this funding step was necessary to secure the required financing needed by Driftwood Pictures in order to complete the production of our film.
For the record, use of any campaign funds by either Mr. Gal or Driftwood Pictures was without permission or consultation from Steel Pulse. Please understand, Steel Pulse (nor any members’ of) has never received any financial proceeds from the Indiegogo funding campaign.
For clarification purpose, Steel Pulse has also been made aware that some fans have not received certain items promised by Mr. Gal. If any of our fans who participated in the Indiegogo funding campaign have not received their committed products, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with your details. All unresolved matters will be immediately directed to the attention of Mr. Gal.
We regret these unfortunate circumstances have occurred. Steel Pulse plans to announce our new film project and production partner before the current year is complete. As we journey ahead, please know we truly value your continuing support, appreciate the loyalty you’ve consistently shown and look forward to being able to share Dreadtown, our life story with you!
Our music is for the upliftment of all people on Jah planet. We must work together for a better tomorrow, to live in I-nity with all creation."
