One of the key figures of the post-punk era, Jah Wobble was also one of the least likely. A proud product of London’s polyglot East End, the former John Wardle harbored no musical aspirations and considered a career as a merchant marine. One day he picked up the bass, found he had an affinity for it, and the next thing he knew, his school friend John Lydon asked him to join Public Image Ltd. Wobble was 18. He enjoyed a short but eventful run with PiL before striking out on his own. With the Invaders of the Heart, he’s found the ideal vehicle to explore his passion for dub reggae, jazz funk, and the low frequencies he writes about so eloquently in Memoirs of a Geezer, his essential autobiography.
