Zion Train became the longest running dub band in the UK and went on to work as a collective not only recording albums, but also starting a record label (Universal Egg), publishing a magazine and even briefly running a music venue. After over ten years and assortment of recordings some of the original members left to pursue other interests. DJ Perch revamped the line up and soldiered on.

In 2007 with a line up of DJ Perch, trumpeter Dave Hake and trombonist Bigga, plus an amalgamation of invited guests, Zion Train released Live As One which won the Jamaican Reggae Grammy for Best Dub Recording. An album of dub remixes of tracks from Live As One has followed the original.
