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’.
To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pure’s Paddy Blockley reads a special poem written by Dorothy Martin from Heaton Moor followed by the God Save The Queen including often overlooked verses.
Each week on New Horizons Paddy Blockley steps into Poets Corner to share with you some of her favourite readings.
You’ll hear prose and poems from authors such as Sir John Betjeman, John Edward Masefield, Philip Larkin and Pam Ayres.
This week, Paddys poem is There Is No God by Hugh Cloth
