One of our very favourite artists and friends of Funkdub are back with a new album, due for release on 27/10/2017, and are out on tour right about now. Get the record and go to a show, they are one of the very best live acts you could hope to see. Picking a list of some our favourites is virtually impossible, but nevertheless, here are five, (well six), of the best from the Dub Pistols!
Crazy Diamonds (featuring Too Many Ts) (2017)
The brand new single & title track is out now and is an absolute stomper straight out of the gate (check out the Jimi Needles Remix too):
Peaches (Featuring Rodney P & Terry Hall) (2007)
The Speakers & Tweeters album from 2007 was a huge record, packed with top guest appearances, which marked the start of a long and fruitful series of collaborations with don of UK MCs Rodney P . You’ll Never Find, (also with Rodney P), features on the album as well opening track Speed Of Light with Blade, another of the UK’s finest MCs. But it’s hard to overlook this Stranglers cover version, with a dash of Terry Hall to boot, a guaranteed party starter:
Everyday Stranger (featuring TK & Ashley Slater) (2009)
The “Rum & Coke” album is another absolute smash, could pick virtually any track and would also point you in the direction of the Nice Up! Refix of Ganja and Back To Daylight. This slower cut is a stone cold winner featuring a great vocal from Ashley Slater (of Freak Power fame):
New Skank (featuring TK) (2012)
The Worshipping the Dollar album is stuffed to the brim with dancing tunes, not least this one that never leaves the box:
Pistoleros (featuring Seanie Tee) (2015)
A particular Funkdub highlight this one, the second time they played for us was at our 10th Birthday in 2014 and they opened up the show with this monster from the “Return Of The Pistoleros” album, happy memories and a great track:
Always room for one more
Too many tracks didn’t make the cut, The “6 Million Ways To Live” Album must get a mention (World Gone Crazy featuring Horace Andy one of the many great tracks on there). It would be wholly remiss not to include the mighty Mucky Weekend featuring Rodney P (2012), so here it is!
