Dub Pistols are a London based dub music and big beat band, founded by ex-club promoter, Barry Ashworth, in 1996. The other members of the band were record producer and bassist Jason O’Bryan, Brooklyn producer and lyricist, T. K. Lawrence on vocals, Jap Slut guitarist John King, and turntablist Steve Hunt. Guest songwriters and vocalists include Blade, James Dewes Sheffield (JMS), Rodney King and Terry Hall. In 2008 Dan Bowskill joined the band.
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, however Dub Pistols remained an infectious live draw, startling audiences in the United Kingdom and around the world. The group’s second album, Six Million Ways to Live, appeared in 2001 and was followed a year later by the mix album Y4K: Next Level Breaks. Read more… »
