2020 is going to be off the chain for the Dub Pistols.
With a new album (‘Addict’) slated for release later in the year, a documentary and even their own festival, Barry Ashworth’s merry gang of outlaw reprobates are simply unstoppable.
The Specials and the 2-Tone movement brilliantly reflected the multi-racial nature of the UK’s inner cities back in the day. The Dub Pistols are like a 21st-century equivalent —a riotous collision of drum & bass, hip-hop, ska, dub and punk.
One of the most exhilarating live bands on the circuit, these festival favourites have survived international terrorism, inter-band warfare and the wheels falling off their operation numerous times. Now a slickly drilled outfit, they’ve nevertheless lost none of their kick-ass vitality and renegade edge wherever they rock up to play.
