Dub Pistols returned to Off The Tracks Festival last week and took the place by storm
this is what Festival for all had to say about the show
The evening session in the marquee is a lively affair that kicks off with ‘Fat Digester’ who are followed by what seemed to be the crowd favourite set of the weekend ‘Dub Pistols’. Dub meets Hip-hop gets the crowds up as Barry Ashworth and Seanie Tee command stage centre, working the beats and crowd as they bang out a great set. ‘Bad Card’ and ‘Running form the Thoughts’ kick off proceedings before a number of tracks from the new album ‘Return of the Pistoleros’. They also toss in a gangsta get down version of Terry Halls ‘Gangster’ which really does ignite the whole crowd, if ever a band nailed a set then this was it.
