By now, we should all know what Barry Ashworth's Dub Pistols band is about. Firm festival favourites almost 20 years after their formation, they gleefully blend dub, ska, jungle, hip-hop, D&B and what would once have been called 'big beat'. It's the sound of cider-and-ganja fuelled afternoons at festivals, dancing like a maniac to Ashworth and crew's party-starting grooves. The Return of The Pistoleros, their first album since 2012, captures this perfectly, with the band's core members being joined by guests including Lindy Layton (yes, she of Beats International fame), Earl 16, and Specials founder member Neville Staple. Open a can of Natch, light up something medicinal and crack on.
