I saw the Dub Colossus Dub Band gig in Cambridge on Friday - it was superb (the only shame was that more people weren't there to see it). They played mostly tracks from this album and it was a real experience to see them performed live. The musicianship was truly excellent (drums, two percussionists/electronic sampling wizards, bass, guitar, two-man horn section and two vocalists). 'Dubulah' on the guitar is an incredible musician. I thoroughly enjoyed it - catch them live if you can.
I haven't heard their previous albums but while there are traces of Ethiopian/jazz elements on here this works as a straight-up dub reggae album. I'm a big fan of King Tubby and other dub and I really enjoy this album. Dub fans may not have clocked this since it seems to be filed under 'world music'. The tracks seem to be cover versions of well-known pop songs - some recognisable, some not - but don't let that put you off. A definite 5 out of 5 album.
