Bass legend JAH WOBBLE (P.I.L., solo and several collaboratibe projects) teamed
up with Leeds-based folk-punk band THE UKRAINIAS (think The Pogues), featuring
former Siouxsie and The Banshees guitarist Jon Klein, who spread the Ukrainian spirit through music for 30 years now, in support of the war refugees.

Together they just shared a dub version of the Ukrainian National Anthem.
Sounds pretty special, right? And it is, absolutely.

It’s a truly unique and inspired version of the war-torn country’s hymn, flavoured
with Wobble‘s trademark dub sound and The Ukrainians’ choir-like chant. This project
grew out of the desire to raise funds, as well as support and awareness for refugees fleeing the continuing conflict in Ukraine.

Jah Wobble: “I was introduced to Len from the Ukrainians by Mark my bass tech. I was very keen to help in any way that I could. So I enlisted the help of Jon Klein and Anthony Hopkins, who I run ‘Tuned in’ with. It’s a community music project based in the London Borough of Merton. We have built a recording studio there. Indeed, at the moment, Anthony is involved in the process of the settlement of Ukrainian refugees coming in to the borough. It was a lot of fun putting the track together. And well done to Len and the rest of the band for initiating this.”

Sales proceeds will go to two charity organisations, Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
and the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain .

LYRICS

Ukraine’s glory has not perished, nor her freedom gone
Our strong people, once again, fate will smile upon
All our enemies will soon disappear like dew in the sun
Then, once more will we be free, in the land we call our own
Body and soul we will lay down for our freedom
And the world will know that we are people of the Kozak nation
