DUB SEX Are often cited as one of Manchester’s greatest “lost” bands.

Formed in the concrete landscape of 1980’s Hulme they had a unique, raw and at times brutal sound all of their own. The band came to prominence in the late 80’s releasing 4 critically acclaimed EP’s, recording 4 John Peel sessions and performing on local and national TV (*Snub TV* and *Tony Wilson’s* Granada TV show,* The Other Side of
Midnight*) with the release of the classic *Swerve* EP in 1989. DUB SEX never fitted into Madchester scene and disappeared in 1990 with members Mark Hoyle (vocals/guitar) and *Cathy Brooks* (bass) going on to form* Dumb* and guitarist Chris Bridgett going on to form *Rude Club.*

The line up in 2014  three original members of the band *Mark Hoyle, Cathy Brooks, Chris Bridget* and two young up and coming first class musicians *Stefan Hoyle and Kevin Clark*.

Dub Sex have just released a 7" single on* Tim Burgess's O Genesis Recordings label *for Record Store Day.Which is a very limited pressing. The A side "Over and Over" was produced by Martin Hannet and recorded at Strawberry Studios back in 1989.

The B side "Time Of Your Life"


was also produced by Martin Hannet ,and Jonathan (Baz) Barrett engineering.Who;s engineering credits include World Of Twist, Spiritualized,Therapy amongst many others.


The band are playing a series of bespoke, tailored shows, like their recent triumphant Sound Control show, but they also will be playing at some cool festivals. Strummercamp and Kendal Calling first, with more to follow.
