Wobble's most recent album 'The Usual Suspects' was released last year and features brand new recordings of some of his finest solo, Invaders Of The Heart and Public Image Limited output.

The man born John Wardle began his musical journey when he met Sex Pistols John Lydon and Sid Vicious at Kingsway College, London, in 1973. John was not only nicknamed 'Jah Wobble' by Vicious after a drunken night out but Vicious also loaned him his first bass guitar and, following the Pistols' split in 1978, Lydon asked Jah Wobble to join his new band Public Image Limited (aka PiL). They immediately scored a Top Ten hit with their debut single "Public Image", and Wardle's distinctive 'low end' bass was identified as the backbone of PiL's pioneering sound, The Times later commenting that there is a "hypnotic power in his playing, a thudding, visceral bassline that dictates the way everybody else will play". After PiL's second album, 'Metal Box', Wardle became disillusioned by politics within the band and their reluctance to play live. He eventually split from PiL mid-1980 and embarked on a prolific solo career, his passion for Eastern and World music also inspiring a number of collaborations including Baaba Maal, Bjork, Primal Scream, Brian Eno, Sinead O'Connor, Julianne Regan, Dolores O'Riordan, Holgat Czukay (Can), The Edge and Chaka Demus and Pliers.
