Recently Jah Wobble brought his Invaders of the Heart to Derby, in the East Midlands. England. It was a small, intimate venue with a crowd that was mixed with a variety of musical tastes. Jah Wobble creates that, and is like that. Bass-dub, if there is such a thing is his thing though. From the mesmeric bass lines that he created with Public Image Ltd, to the mesmeric bass lines he created across all the collaborations and bands he has played with.
On the night I was lucky enough to be there to photograph them they were at their best. They were sharp and seemed to genuinely be having a great time. In the dimly lit club I tried to capture the intimacy, the real closeness of the band and audience. And photographer, if truth be know.
Here’s a few of Jah, Martin Chung (on guitar) and the setting. Amazing.
And finally, the bass awaits.
And Jah Wobble. In lights.
