Jah Wobble: Memoirs of a Geezer For one night only Jah Wobble makes his debut appearance at WoWFEST.
About this Event

For one night only, Jah Wobble, top geezer, legendary bass player and founding member of Public Image Limited with former Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, makes his debut appearance at WoWFEST discussing his newly released expanded edition of Dark Luminosity: Memoirs of a Geezer. Get ready for an enthralling night of storytelling as Jah Wobble, arguably the greatest bass player of his generation, recounts tales from his frank and fascinating memoir. WoW’s own Lord Borthbury will be on the decks playing music selected by Jah Wobble from his roadmap of musical memories.

Jah Wobble, born John Wardle in 1958, was renamed by Sid Vicious who at the time struggled to pronounce his name correctly. He is an English bassist, singer and composer, who began his astounding 45+ year career in music as a founding member of Public Image Limited in 1978 with former Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, quickly becoming known for his distinctive and trailblazing bass, combining elements of dub, funk and world music.

In 1980 he left PiL to pursue a solo career, releasing his debut album The Legend Lives On … Jah Wobble In Betrayal, followed over the years by a succession of acclaimed solo albums and collaborations with the likes of Holger Czukay from Can, The Edge from U2, Chris Connelly from Ministry, Geordie Walker from Killing Joke, Brian Eno, Sinead O’Connor and Bjork. His work showcases his unique style and his interest in world music, particularly that of Africa and the Middle East. His innovative ability to blend diverse styles into a cohesive whole continues to receive accolades.

Jah Wobble is also a prolific writer and author, having published books on music, politics and spirituality. He has stories to tell and recounts them with charm, humour and honesty. One of his recent solo albums, The Bus Routes Of South London, was written and recorded on … buses in South London. Of course it was. Legendary hardly begins to cover it…
