During the heyday of punk rock in the mid to late 70s, Jah Wobble earned himself the reputation of being something of a wildman. His original introduction to the bass stemmed from his long-term obsession with dub reggae music. Combined with the D.I.Y. punk ethos, he embraced punk and reggae, and in the process, created an original rock/reggae hybrid of his own.
The Sex Pistols' John Lydon asked Wobble to join Public Image Limited (aka PiL) during the spring of 1978, and Wardle’s distinctive ‘low end’ bass immediately put PiL on the map and became the backbone of the band. After PiL, and before the genre became in vogue, Wardle became a well respected session and solo artist, with a genuine passion for Eastern and Global music. Over the past 37 years he has worked with a diverse range of musicians and music genres, way too many to mention here.
Jah Wobble & The Invaders Of The Heart will perform at the London Bass Guitar Show, with some of Jah Wobble’s finest solo, Invaders Of The Heart and Public Image Limited output from an incredible and genre bursting career that spans nearly forty years.
