From their early singles for Concrete Records to their genre defying “Worshiping the Doller” LP, the Dub Pistols have always added a much needed Rock n Roll swagger to the UK’s dance scene. Chewing up hip-hop, dub, techno, ska & punk & spitting them out in a renegade futuristic skank they have consistently defied genres & exceeded the highest of expectations. The band debuted in late 1996 with the singles “There’s Gonna Be a Riot” and “Best Got Better.” By the time of their 1998 debut album, Point Blank, big beat appeared to have run its course. Dub Pistols remained an infectious live draw, however, startling audiences in Britain and around the world.
With eight studio albums behind them and 23 years on the scene, the Dubs continue to be one of the busiest bands on the circuit. Seemingly no music festival is complete without their riotous blend of ska, dub, hip-hop, electro, breakbeat, punk and drum & bass. Good times are guaranteed when the Dub Pistols blaze in to fire up the joint, and they’ll party all night — if you let them – until the motorway sun comes up with the morning light.
