Alive / Mucky Weekend
Released: 22 June 2012
Taken from the unstoppable Dub Pistols impending fifth album ‘Worshipping The Dollar’, comes standout track ‘Alive’ featuring reggae legend Red Star Lion and the very radio-unfriendly yet hilarious DNB monster ‘Mucky Weekend’ with Rodney P.
Remixes of ‘Alive’ come from Hackman, Urban Knights and Sunday Best.
From their early beginnings as a soundsystem project, Dub Pistols have grown into a party-rocking live band that ignites festivals and venues. Their infectious blend of ska, dub, hip-hop, electronic music and punk has won them many fans around the globe over the past 15 years and, following sold-out shows across Europe, they were justifiably voted the Best Live Act at DJ Mag’s Best Of British Awards at the end of 2011.
Barry Ashworth and his motley crew created their latest long-player in between gigs every weekend following the release of acclaimed 2009 album ‘Rum & Coke’. ‘Worshipping The Dollar’ sees a return to lyrical themes explored on earlier albums with deeper and more conscious lyrics and a pacier feel to the tracks, which mirrors their increasingly frenetic live shows.
