Jah Wobble: The ace of bass

There is, with Jah Wobble, a problem of protocol. Friends call him “Wobble”, but that seems presumptuous. Calling him “Jah” seems bizarre. “Mr Wobble” is hardly more satisfactory. The reggaefied moniker is a comic mispronunciation of his real name, first coined, Wobble believes, by John Lydon (also known as Rotten), though legend has it that the nickname was invented by Sid Vicious (nee John Ritchie). Fortunately, Wobble offers a way out telling me to ask for John Wardle.
