As they gear up to celebrate 20 years of unhinged lunacy, the Dub Pistols return with their seventh studio album, entitled 'Crazy Diamonds', released via Sunday Best on October 13th.
One of the hardest working bands in show business, Barry Ashworth and his motley crew have added a much-needed swagger to the UK dance scene in recent years and new album 'Crazy Diamonds' finds the band at their uncontrollable, bass-driven best.
A rampant mix of dub, reggae, ska, punk, breaks, beats and drum 'n' bass, the album is a full-on dub-quaking extravaganza, built for big fields and summer sound systems. It also happens to feature some of the biggest names in the game including Dancehall dons Beenie Man and Cutty Ranks, reggae singer Earl Sixteen, hip-hop act Too Many T's, seminal MCs Navigator and the Ragga Twins, and long-time collaborator Lindy Layton.
Tracks like the killer new single 'Crazy Diamonds' (ft. Too Many T's) or summer-anthem-in-making, 'Rise Up' (ft. Earl Sixteen and Navigator), prove that the Pistols are one of the best around at rockin' the joint. This is futuristic skank, complete with blazing horns, brazen brass and epic drums and bass.
