Bass player, singer, composer, poet, and one-time London Tube driver, over a 36-year career in music Jah Wobble has carved a reputation as ‘a true maverick’ (The Guardian).
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, receiving his new nickname ‘Jah Wobble’ from Vicious after a drunken night out.
Playing in Lydon’s post-Pistols band Public Image Limited (aka PiL) until 1981, he then embarked on a prolific solo career, his passion for Eastern and world music also inspiring a huge number of collaborations.
He recently released an ambitious six-CD box set career retrospective, ReDux. He is at The Cellars at Eastney tonight. Tickets £18. Doors 7.30pm. Go to thecellars.co.uk
