Wednesday 31st May, 2017 9:30AM

Dub 'n' bass pioneers Salmonella Dub will be celebrating their 25th anniversary with three special shows over summer that will see them re-joined by former bandmate Tiki Taane. The group, who tucked seven studio album, three remix albums and four EPs under their belts since forming in Christchurch in 1992, will be delivering "an iconic, audio-visual, bass heavy, back catalogue mash up with a super-abundantly full treasure chest of guests", according to founding member Andrew Penman. Tiki Taane performed with the group for ten years from 1996 until 2006, and says helping his old bandmates celebrate the milestone is "a glorious prospect and probably a once in a lifetime occurrence".
