--------------------------------------
Sometimes you have to go through the mill to realise why you were put on this Earth. So it is with the Dub Pistols , the reggae-breaks-jungle mashup, the gangster-swaggering festival stalwarts whose rollercoaster story reads like a rock’n’roll cautionary tale on a grand scale. When big beat ruled the clubs the Pistols were snapped up for $1.5m by legendary Interscope magnate Jimmy Iovine and anointed Geffen Records’ priority act for America. But Geffen put their album out the week that 9/11 happened, so the Dub Pistols ended up broke and label-less instead of US superstars. This is how it happens. They get knocked down — but they get back up.
Formed in 1996, Dub Pistols recently released their 8th studio album “Addict” through acclaimed label, Sunday Best Recordings. The record promises a melting pot of dubwise sensibility, junglist riddims, and feelgood party anthems and is already shaping up to be one of the year’s essential releases.
“I recorded over 3 albums worth of music to get to the finished version of ‘Addict’,” says Dub Pistols mastermind Barry Ashworth. “Every time I finished a song, I would come up with another idea for a track and an artist I wanted to work with. It’s been incredible to collaborate with all the legends that I have on this record, but it’s also the new emerging talent such as Natty Campbell and Gardna that have really given me new enthusiasm. The album has taken two years to record but has been 25 years in the making.”
