Inspired by a love for Public Enemy, The Specials and the Clash, Barry Ashton (formerly of Ceasefire) and Jason Oâ€™Bryan (formerly of DÃ©jÃ Vu) have created a one-of-a-kind groove that will give you all the skank and body-shaking beats youâ€™ll ever need.
Formed about a decade ago in West London, the Dub Pistols have become a name recognized around the world with an impressive repertoire, which include 3 full length albums, remixes for Moby, Limp Bizkit, Crystal Method and a featured track in the movie Blade II.
With an explosive full band live performance, the Dub Pistols have been lumped under the big beat tag alongside the Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim in the UK. Harnessing an all-star get-up with Terry Hall (ex-Specials singer), UK hip-hop hero Rodney P and US Rapper T.K. Lawrence, itâ€™s no wonder the Dub Pistols have gotten the thumbs up from critics of all genres.
From alternative rock icons such as Gogol Bordello and Perry Farrell, to dance-music artists such as Ed Chemical and Paul Daley, the praise the Dub Pistols receive from their musical peers comes to show one thing: their musical talent and versatility goes unquestioned.

â€œ[Dub Pistols] are one of a small handful of bands that you sense creating music primarily because they too want to hear what they have to play. In a sense, they are a heartwarming story of DIY. Dub Pistols music is always likely to slip beneath the mainstream radar because it is utterly without compromise.â€ – PopMatters
â€œDub Pistolsâ€™ sound is instantly recognizable and there arenâ€™t many acts who can put that on their musical CVs.â€ – MusicOM
