Binz

Sunday 19th March 2017

Name?
Mein Name ist Jah Wobble. Ich Weiss Von Nichts.

Where are you from?
Ostseebad Binz.

What do you do?
I was formerly a Baron. But all that suffered a down turn. I had to have it 'on my toes'. At present, I am employed as a professional electric bass player.

Describe your style in three words?
Haberdashery strut foible.

If you could make a record with anyone from history?
Ludwig Van Beethoven - He was intense and he grooved. It's the 7th all day long for me. A stately piece of music.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to and why?
Bob Marley - 1975 London Lyceum. It's still a country mile ahead of anything else I've ever seen musically.

What music icons inspire your sound today?
Arvo Part.

Are there any British subcultures that mean something to you?
I think the whole Park Bowling scene is pretty hip. It's very English of course - Curling would be its Scottish alternative.

What music did you listen to growing up?
Blue Beat /Ska.


Jah Wobble became known to a wider audience as the original bass player in Public Image Ltd (PiL). He left after their first two albums and has gone on to have a successful solo career.

His latest album 'The Usual Suspects' was released in June 2017 under the name Jah Wobble & The Invaders Of The Heart.
