JAH WOBBLE'S INVADERS OF THE HEART
Over the past three decades or so,Jah Wobblehas ploughed his own furrow as a prolific solo artist, as well as becoming a well-respected session musician, with a genuine passion for Eastern and Global music. He has worked with a diverse range of musicians, includingBaaba Maal, Bjork, Primal Scream, Brian Eno, Sinead O’Connor, Julianne Regan, Dolores O’Riordan, Holgat Czukay, The EdgeandChaka Demus & Pliers.
The man bornJohn Wardlebegan his musical journey when he metJohn LydonandSid Viciousin 1973. It was Vicious who not only nicknamed John ‘Jah Wobble’after a drunken binge but also loaned him his first bass guitar. Lydon asked JW to joinPublic Image Limited(akaPiL) in spring 1978. Wardle’s distinctive ‘low end’ bass became the backbone of PiL’s pioneering sound. After its follow-up, the exploratory yet sinister soundscapes of 'Metal Box',Wardle became disillusioned by politics within the band and their reluctance to play live. He eventually split fromPiLin mid-1980 and embarked on a prolific solo career.
Jah Wobble's Invaders of the Heartreleased their debut album in 1990 and received a Mercury Music Prize nomination in 1991 for the'Rising above bedlam'album. After the acclaimed 'Take me to God' album in 1994 the band split andJah Wobblelaunched his own 30 Hertz record label which has subsequently released around 30 albums.
