The Dub Pistols play The Factory, Barnstaple, on Saturday, December 2

Dance scene fans will be squirming in anticipation as the Dub Pistols prepare to return to Barnstaple with their uncontrollable, bass-driven best.

Celebrating 20 years of unhinged lunacy, the band will be bringing their new album Crazy Diamonds to town at The Factory on Saturday, December 2.

One of the hardest working bands in show business, Barry Ashworth and his motley crew has added a much-needed swagger to the UK dance scene in recent years.

The band offer 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 features some big 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 such as killer new single Crazy Diamonds (ft. Too Many T’s) or summer-anthem-in-making, Rise Up (ft. Earl Sixteen and Navigator), prove the Pistols can really rock the joint.

This is futuristic skank, complete with blazing horns, brazen brass and epic drums.

For tickets go to or call in at Beatsworkin in Queen Street.
