Jah Wobble on New Horizons

22 December 2013 by Pure Radio

Jah Wobble became famous in the late 1970’s playing the bass guitar with John Lydon, in the post punk band Public Image Limited.

Jah Wobble, real name is John Waddle, talks to Pure’s resident poet Paddy Blockley. They have more in common than you might think both are bona fide Cockneys, and both now call Stockport home.

They also share another passion, a love for poetry. In 1996 Jah Wobble released an album of William Blake’s poetry set to music and now he has had his own collections of poems published called ‘Odds and Sods and Epilogues’.
