Jah Wobble was born John Wardle in 1958 and is an English bassist, singer and composer. He began his music career as founding member of PiL in 1978 with Keith Levene and former Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon and quickly became known for his distinctive bass style, combining elements of dub, funk and world music. During his time with PiL, Wobble played on some of the band’s most acclaimed albums, including METAL BOX and FIRST ISSUE, and collaborated with Keith Levene and Martin Atkins on a number of side projects.

In 1980 Wobble left PiL to pursue a solo career, releasing his debut album THE LEGEND LIVES ON … JAH WOBBLE IN BETRAYAL that same year, followed by a string of acclaimed solo albums throughout the 1980s and 1990s. His solo work continued to showcase his unique style alongside his interest in world music, particularly African and Middle Eastern music. He has also collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including Brian Eno, Bjork and Sinead O’Connor, and formed several bands, including Jah Wobble’s Invaders Of The Heart and Jan Wobble & The Chinese Dub Orchestra. His music has been and remains highly influential, particularly in the areas of dub and world music, and his innovative playing style and ability to blend diverse musical styles into a cohesive whole continue to receive accolades.

Wobble is also a prolific writer, having published books on music, politics and spirituality, and is renowned for his interest in Eastern philosophy having written extensively on the subject. He remains a highly influential musician and artist who has made a significant impact on the world of music and beyond, making him a truly original and important figure in the history of music. He has stories to tell and recounts them with charm, with humour and with honesty. His latest solo album, THE BUS ROUTES OF SOUTH LONDON, was written and recorded on buses in South London. Of course it was.

Legendary hardly begins to cover it …
