  4. cheers to Dave Sez and Skamanc Jah Wobble's bass playing on the early public image albums was superb, and his book about the punk and pil days is rumoured to be just as good, right better get D/L ING.

  8. Ta muchly to Herr Pauli, Du bist wirklich ein Schatz fuer den Hinweis! Aber bitte nur Blog-Seiten angeben wenn sie noch lebendig sind, statt direkte Download-Links - ohne Blog-Seite-Angabe, kriegt der arme Blogger keine Kommentare ...

    The webpage link is http://tuningmaze3.blogspot.com/2010/06/jah-wobble-bedroom-album-1983.html, please go and thank our Italian friend Webbaticy there! He has a couple more too, search his posts ..

    In thanks to Herr Pauli for the tip-off, and for martin41smith too (sorry, very little live PIL), here's a Wobble & Whitehead, I think from a 12" extended dub from the Bedroom album, reposted as I can't find the original blog:

  10. And a heads-up for martin41smith if he's watching (and hasn't found this already), the great Pil Head is re-upping early live Pil/Wobble et al here: http://pilhead.blogspot.com - go say thanks to the man! Cheers, Dave Sez.

  11. And not that anyone's listening, but I never cease to be amazed by these recordings, by far the best Jah Wobble has ever produced in the free-form dub style, particularly the 1982 and 1983 Dutch live sets featuring Britain's foremost reggae trombonist, Annie Whitehead. Couldn't go without mentioning my joy at finding her first solo album Mix Up from 1984, here thanks to dial africa:

    Cheers mate! Dave Sez.
