Press Release

New expanded edition of iconic British musician and punk rebel Jah Wobble's crictically acclaimed autobi- ography featuring a new introduction by Jon Savage. Written in his own unmistakable voice and with a new afterword by the au- thor, this is the frank and fascinating memoir by arguably the greatest bass player of his generation. Beginning with an East End childhood in a London barely recovered from the War, he takes us on a journey through the begin- nings of punk and post-punk as a founding member of Public Image Limited, an illustrious forty-year solo career which has seen collaborations musical greats such as U2, Brian Eno and CAN and a Mercury Music Prize nomina- tion through to the present day still playing to sell out audiences. Along the way we hear how Wobble navigated chronic alcoholism and marital break- down and has emerged as a national treasure. If you ever wondered how got his name, the answer is here: his teenage pal Sid Vicious gave it to him when he drunkenly slurred Wobble's real name, John Wardle.
