Rare club show for iconic British bassist. "Since his days with Public Image, Jah Wobble has been a maverick talent, the bass-toting equivalent of Clint Eastwood's gunslinger" THE OBSERVER.
With a perfect combination of global music, reggae and punk influences, Jah
Wobble has entranced the world with his hypnotic bass riffs for over four
decades and has become one of Britain’s most influential and distinct bass
players. Accompanied by his band, Invaders of the Heart, Jah Wobble is
reborn into a new decade as defiant as ever with a brand new UK tour.
Born John Wardle, the nickname was given to him by Sid Vicious following an
evening of drunken antics. Sid Vicious then went on to give Jah his first ever
bass guitar. As a bassist, Jah Wobble is well known as one of the founding
members and ultimately the back bone of the legendary Public Image
Limited (PiL) during the early years. Whilst working with John Lyndon,
Keith Levene and Jim Walker, Jah’s notoriously powerful low end bass
created PiL’s debut album Public Image: First Issue, which included the
band’s first Top 10 single as well as their prestigious second album Metal Box,
which included the post-punk classic Death Disco.
Since departing with PiL, Jah has flourished as a musical genius and has been
involved in many areas of the music industry. Jah is now a prevalent solo
artist with his band, Invaders of the Heart and was nominated for a Mercury
Music Prize for his debut album, Rising Above Bedlam. Following the release
of the highly acclaimed second album, Take Me To God, Jah also became a
successful entrepreneur by developing his own independent record label, 30
Hertz Records, which is responsible for the release of a variety of renowned
records. Additionally, Jah has worked with the likes of Primal Scream,
Dolores O’Riordan, Sinead O’Connor and many more as an illustrious session
musician. In 2017, Jah Wobble & The Invaders Of The Heart released their
latest album The Usual Suspects.
