Biography :
Barry Ashworth and Jason O'Bryan AKA the Dub Pistols have spent the best part of a decade at the forefront of Beats culture. From their early singles for Concrete Records to their genre defying 'Six Million Ways To Live' long player, the Dub Pistols have always added a much needed Rock n Roll swagger to the UK's dance scene. Chewing up hip-hop, dub, techno, ska and punk and spitting them out in a renegade futuristic skank they have consistently defied categorisation and exceeded the highest of expectations.

Their genre-mashing abilities have led to remix work for the likes of Lily Allen, Bono, Ian Brown, Moby, Natalie Imbruglia, Crystal Method, Limp Bizkit & Korn, and has seen them work with hip-hop legend Busta Rhymes on 'One', a track for the Blade 2 soundtrack and 'Molotov' on the Y Tu Mama Tambien soundtrack. In recent years the band has mutated from a studio based duo into a fully fledged live act often featuring the talents of guest vocalists UK Hip Hop don Rodney P, the maverick and mercurial former Specials front man Terry Hall, US rap wünderkind T.K., as well as Sugardaddy horn-blower Tim Hutton and scratch maestro DJ Stix.

Their third album 'Speakers And Tweeters', released on 9th April 2007, through Rob da Bank's Sunday Best label, is a consummate statement of intent. Their most accessible to date, the album's 13 tracks draw on a rich tapestry of influences, weaving tight beats and even tighter rhymes into a refined and assured set. The stirring chords and laid-back beats of 'Speed of Light', featuring guest vocalist Blade's skilful flow, opens the album in style. An inspired cover of Punk legends The Stranglers' classic 'Peaches', immediately grabs the attention, with the vocal dexterities of guest vocalists Rodney P and Terry Hall taking centre stage, before the pumping, angular funk of the album's title track 'Speakers And Tweeters' takes hold. A deeply ingrained skank runs throughout the album, as ably demonstrated on the horn-driven 'Running From The Thoughts'.
