The Pop Group

& Dennis Bovell MBE Share a New Track From the Brand New Dub Version of Their Debut Album

LISTEN TO ‘SHE IS BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL’ (DENNIS BOVELL DUB VERSION)

Y IN DUB’ – OUT 29 OCTOBER 2021

“Dub to me is the music of chance.  A teenage dream come true – at last – this one’s for the explorers.”  Mark Stewart

The Pop Group and dub maestro Dennis ‘Blackbeard’ Bovell MBE have shared a new track from their forthcoming dub version of The Pop Group’s debut album, Y, one of the era-defining releases of the post-punk period. This new track gives another taste of what to expect from this clash of the titan’s forthcoming release, Y in Dub, out on 29 October 2021 on Mute.

From its original release in 1979, ‘She Is Beyond Good And Evil’ has been showered with accolades – from NME’s Singles of the Year, to the Guardian’s 1000 Songs Everyone Must Hear – this key track in band’s career is the next in line for a new Dennis Bovell dub reworking.

Listen to the new version here:

Mirroring the tracklisting of their 1979 debut, Y in Dub is a 9-track collection of heavyweight dub versions that match the prodigious intensity of their source material, reflecting the enterprising originality of the dub and reggae music that inspired The Pop Group, as well as the legendary ingenuity of their longstanding collaborator Dennis Bovell, recently was awarded an MBE for his services to music.

After celebrating the 40th anniversary reissue of Y – released by Mute in 2019 – ThePop Group enlisted Bovell to reinterpret the album after his extraordinary appearance at Rough Trade East in London for the band’s ‘Salon Y’ event series the same year. The event saw Bovell perform live versions of ‘She Is Beyond Good & Evil’ and ‘3.38’, based on the deconstructive principles of dub. With Y In Dub, Bovell reprises his role at the controls.

Testifying to the legacy of the original yet also signifying a new, alternate triumph, Y In Dub sees The Pop Group and Bovell explore latent possibilities within the fabric of Y. Here they amplify shadows and echoes, intensively accentuating the resonance of each element. The original material is submerged and prolonged, shattered, splintered, and sculpted into turbulent, contrasting forms which deviate from the original tracks in compelling, unexpected ways.

Y in Dub will be released on Mute on CD and digitally on 29 October 2021, with the vinyl release, which comes with an exclusive poster, set to follow on 25 March 2022: https://mute.ffm.to/yindub
