The Dub Pistols – What Could Possibly Go Wrong

0003Project aim
Please help raise the final funding of £7500 required to complete and release the Dub Pistols documentary “What Could Possibly Go Wrong”.
‘What Could Possibly Go Wrong’ is a documentary that charts The Dub Pistols’ extraordinary journey from chancers to hot property to epic f**k-ups to unlikely triumphs…

Led by indefatigable south-Londoner Barry Ashworth, The Dub Pistols have lived every rock ’n’ roll cliche more vividly, knowingly and hilariously than almost any other British band. They’ve burned through record labels, band members, and hundreds of thousands of pounds with their almost heroic devotion to hedonism. Yet they have worked with heroes like The Specials, Busta Rhymes, Horace Andy, Madness and Gregory Isaacs, and have recently released their best album to date – ’The Return Of The Pistoleros’ out now on Sunday Best Recordings. And, after surviving 19 years, The Dub Pistols are busier than ever, having reinvented themselves as the ultimate Festival band, the go-to act to get a big crowd dancing.

“What Could Possibly Go Wrong, is about everything that’s ever happened to us, all the ups and downs, the victories and disasters,” says Barry. “I call us the most successful unsuccessful band of all time — and the hardest-working lazy b******s in the world. Sometimes I can’t believe we’re here, but we’ve survived and we’re doing better than ever.”

The finished documentary will be premiered in spring 2017.
