Speaking to...

Lee Allen, then Manager of a fledgling Steel Pulse in 1975. Click to enlarge. Cecil Morris, promoter, agent, tv producer and more. Click to enlarge.

Left: Lee Allen. Right: Cecil Morris.

At the end of 2005, I met two men who had a big impact on a fledgling Steel Pulse around the time of their first public appearances in 1975 and 1976. Lee Allen and Cecil Morris recalled their personal associations with an emerging Steel Pulse with great fondness. Lee was the band's first Manager whilst Cecil was the promoter responsible for their talent competition at Santa Rosa success a year later. He also owns video footage of the competition which is most likely the earliest recorded footage of Steel Pulse playing live. Snippets from the two interviews will appear here.
