Dreadzone at Sub89
Dub pioneers Dreadzone + Engine Earz Experiment come to Reading music venue, Sub89...
Dreadzone are leaders in their field, with their infectious cacophony of electronica, ska and reggae getting crowds dancing for close to 20 years. Out to promote their soon to be released ‘Best Of’ album, all the back catalogue favourites are likely to be in the mix in the upcoming tour. This band are showing no signs of slowing down.....if anything they are cranking it up even more.
With a number of the members having been part of The Clash’s Mick Jones Big Audio Dynamite project in the late 80's, it was clear that the dub based sound was becoming increasingly popular with that success.
The band under its current guise made its debut on the scene under the wing of renowned label owner Alan Mcgee’s Creation Records in the mid 90's. Since their inception, Dreadzone have released 5 critically acclaimed albums, including the seminal 1995 release ‘Second Light’, which John Peel later named in his top 10 favourite albums of all time.
Favourites on the UK festival circuit, and with their hugely loyal fan base, seeing this band live in Reading is not going to be one you can afford to miss.
