Jah Wobble

About Jah Wobble

Jah Wobble is one of the genuine musical polymaths to emerge from the post-punk era as a virtuoso bassist, composer, producer, journalist, and author. His dub-heavy style weds reggae, jazz, funk, punk, and numerous global folk traditions. Though he emerged as the bassist in Public Image Ltd. he left after two albums to pursue an idiosyncratic musical path that began with the album Betrayal in 1980. He formed Invaders of the Heart and released the Mercury Prize-nominated Rising Above Bedlam in 1991. After 1997's experimental dub offering Heaven & Earth, Wobble issued a string of acclaimed albums in several genres including The Celtic Poets and Molam Dub. Invaders of the Heart released 2016's Everything Is No Thing. In 2019, they recorded with guest Bill Laswell on Realm of Spells. In 2021, Wobble released Metal Box [Rebuilt in Dub], a complete dub reinvention of PiL's legendary second album.
