It was with great honor to join forces with our recent collaborators, Director, Yonathan Gal and David Hinds of legendary reggae group, Steel Pulse, to help promote their documentary, DREADTOWN! They asked us to design the graphics for T-shirts, which are part of their Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to finish up the film and put it in cinemas in 2016.
More on the T's themselves in posts to come!
From their FB page: Steel Pulse have raged for forty years, cutting a swathe 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' is a feature documentary that 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 timeless reggae bands.
Director and friend of the band Yoni Gal goes where no person has gone yet with 'Dreadtown'. Steel Pulse has never been documented in such detail and group members, past and present, have been interviewed extensively for the movie. Access to archives held by group members, as well as friends, family and associates, has unearthed a huge amount of never-before-seen footage and archival photos.
'Dreadtown' promises to be a significant document in time on the history of one of the most exciting musical genres in the world today.
'Dreadtown' is narrated by acclaimed Hollywood actor and social activist Danny Glover. Interviewees range from Rita Marley to Matt Groening (creator, The Simpsons), Lennox Lewis (World Heavyweight Boxing Champion), Snoop Lion, Alpha Blondy (United Nations Ambassador of Peace), Burning Spear, UB40, John Lydon (Sex Pistols), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Damian Marley, Ziggy Marley, Chris Blackwell (founder, Island Records), Linton Kwesi Johnson, C. Thomas Howell (actor), Aswad, Billy Idol, The Specials, Michael Franti, Jason Mraz and many more.
