Album: IN DUB II
Released: 25 September 2020

Cherry Records info: “Compiled and annotated by Wobble, who has also contributed some
of his paintings for the front cover and the booklet, IN DUB II picks up where its predecessor left off, sampling his 30 Hertz catalogue from 1990 onwards. Bringing this fascinating musical story up-to-date, IN DUB II also boasts two brand new recordings, ‘Silk Road Dub’ and ‘Yangqin Dub’, as well as three tracks from 2019’s EP, The Electro Dub Extravaganza. The front cover design reproduces one of Jah Wobble’s paintings, entitled ‘Tower Blocks on the Marshes ‘.”

This new double CD collection features his work with bands Invaders Of The Heart,
Deep Space, Temple Of Sound
and the Nippon Dub Ensemble, plus collaborations with
singers Julie Campbell and Yulduz Usmanova among others.

Jah Wobble: ““All you’ve got to do is put a bass in my hand and an iPad and I’m away.
I get the iPad out and I start a track and within ten minutes it’s taken me. Every track you
work on is very different. Making music really captures me. ”

Turn Up The Volume: “Sorry, can’t speak now. I’m still somewhere
in space with this extended dub extravaganza on my headphones.”

JAH WOBBLE Featuring MARK STEWART And Friends Tackle British Conservative Party With Critical Banger ‘A VERY BRITISH COUP’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

20 February 2020

When legendary post-punk misfits Jah Wobble, Mark Stewart, Keith Levene and Richard Dudanski come together you know there’s electricity in the air. Critical electricity. Hectic electricity. Confrontational electricity and barbed songs with a razor-sharp message.

With ‘A VERY BRITISH COUP‘ this unique collaboration tackles the British Conservative hypocrites and their misleading and demagogic campaign with which they pushed voters to leave the European Union.

Musically the track is an electrifying banger driven by Jah Wobble‘s striking bass
grooves and Dudanski‘s repetitive solid drum beat, intensified with Levene‘s metallic
guitar resonance and Stewart’s nightmarish and reproachful voice navigating all over it. The final result is a kick-ass uppercut with an angry middle finger for all those lying politicians who messed-up really badly.

Here’s the funky coup…
