So this is us, to the bone and for now.
Ladies and gentlemen, we give you….
On bass, John Lilja. Fast and furious. Even has a slow gear. Grounded and heavy. As they come.
Ruben Rott Dalen is the timemaster. Different drum and then some. Trombone as the Mighty Elephants call their mates and mourn their deceased. Who else but Arne Kolstad? Who else?
Saxophones region is Glenn Brun Henriksen.Power and fire. Wailing.Up comes the keyboardsman. Jan Petter Taarland is bubbling sharply. As is Børre Jacobsen on guitar. Sharp stabs and seagull soloing. Didrik “ El DID” Ingvaldsen is the thrilling trumpeteer. Walls of Jericho, go! And then Lone Ungar is singing and sharing her soul with us lucky listeners. Waiflike in stature, but of mother natures best. Vocalising, guitarplaying, musicmaking is William Helvik. Founding father og Rub A Dubs.
That’s it, so far
New album "Sugar In Space" out now, on
A SHORT HISTORY OF RUB A DUBS
BIRTH IN 96
We started up in the autumn. Practised our licks. Got ready for sharing. Held our first concert in the deep snow of December. Each new arrival brought with them a little snow into the auditorium. That’s a good start if there ever was one.
Played to keep warm. Played to keep alive.
Got to be a habit. Then in 99, out of Rubadubs came the “Dreamtime”. First album was a fact. Some nice reviews came our way. Some angels came to visit too. tracks to be proud of include “Fujiyama”, “ Peacemaker”, “Spooky” and “ Blow it my way”. Wind blew our way on a modest level.
DIVORCE IN 2001
As in love, so in bands. Some members left. New friends arrived. Fresh in love with our music we made second album, and we felt we were “Rockin’ on top”. Really!
Check out what we have to say about the Holy Spirit on “Bright burning fire”. Still sends some sparkles down our own well scrubbed necks to play this one in concert. Title track just goes to show how modest we are in selfpromotion. Honest, good and clean, indeed. More niceties showed up in feedback.
THREE TWO ONE AND INTO SPACE IN 2004
Third time up album “SUGAR IN SPACE” is what it says. Even Americans appreciated this one. They say FBI notified the CIA. They’re on to us, and we’ve been living underground for the last year. Cable tv though. The things we’ve been watching down here. Roots all around.
We still think you should do yourself a favour and collect this one immediately. “Are you ready”. Next track “Real love”. How it should be, as I’N I would say. Great reviews too. Still room for greater sales figures. Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet baby.
What’s more. We stay together. Not to be terrorised off track. Take that as an example. Let us provide the soundtrack to bravery and emotions in true motion.
Rub A Dubs is an absolutely
brilliant reggae band from Norway. Strangely enough they have managed to
create a stunning reggae sound despite living closer to the north pole
than Jamaica. Rub A Dubs have the audience skankin', groovin', smilin' &
enjoying themselves every time they get on stage.
