Dub Sex 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 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 Manchester 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 2015 includes 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*
